Playing GOD by Ruzzeki Harris

Wei-Ling Gallery, Brickfields

Playing GOD depicts the social conduct of today’s society through the artist’s own observation. Many names have been coined to describe the current era in which we live in; “The Social Media Era”, “The Second Depression”, or as Ruzzeki Harris himself puts it “The Slandering Era”. Day in and day out, we see the “elite” class habitually assuming the main role in human hierarchy; discerning themselves quite tenaciously as an oppressor amongst the mediocre class and minorities, subjugating the less fortunate to their feet. Acts of slandering have become all too common, almost as if growing into a necessity in our everyday life; making us turn vile against one another and eventually moulding our society into something vulnerable.
