Ameles Potamos - Water of Lethe, 2021, h
AMELES POTAMOS

INAS AL-SOQI

Orenda Art Works is pleased to present Ameles Potamos, a collection of new work from Romanian-Palestinian artist Inas Al-soqi. Taken from the Greek name for the "Water of Lethe", the title refers to the propensity of humanity to forget its past, and repeat history. Al-soqi's collages are a tempest of images, fitted together to form compositions rife with socio-political commentary, while also containing elements of levity. From the pandemic to the insurrection of January 6th, Al-soqi comments on access to healthcare, government misinformation, and the impacts the pandemic has had on her own artistic process. To insert lightheartedness, Al-soqi includes bits of humor, such as the figure of Don Quixote in the work Paraphyletic, riding cluelessly as conflicts occur before him, much in the way many of us felt as the government spread misinformation that the pandemic would be over by the summer of 2020. Read an exclusive interview below to learn more about Al-soqi's work and process.
