press release

Meriç Algün Ringborg (b. 1983, Istanbul, lives and works in Stockholm) presents a seemingly simple horizontal line, consisting of scriptures from the Holy Bible, that courses through Witte de With’s exhibition space. Perhaps the most unexpected point of departure for Line No.2 (Holy Bible) is Alexander Selkirk who is known as the original Robinson Crusoe, the central protagonist in Daniel Defoe’s fictional yet biographical novel first published in 1719. Algün Ringborg’s work presents the Holy Bible as a symbol for self-control as it appeared in Selkirk and Crusoe’s stories, further stipulating on the role of religion throughout history.
