Ruin as Ornament
By ‘Deyemi Akande, 2016 H. Allen Brooks Travelling Fellow
February 5, 2018

Parthenon

I am not from a culture that values ruined objects. We see and relate to them more as an eyesore than vestiges of a great past. In fact, culturally, we are obligated to repair, replace or remove ruined objects. As a historian, who is also Yoruba, being in Greece presents a chronic and well-founded conflict within me. Thankfully, culture alone does not inform my actions.
