Art Talks: Hamza Kırbaş & Seçkin Aydın
Bilsart is hosting Hamza Kırbaş’s solo exhibition entitled “Suspended” between May 15 and May 25.
The video work entitled “Suspended” explores the suspension of the concepts, which are important for human life, by removing their contents. While these concepts vary from society to society, there are some that are of universal importance and concern not only to human beings but to all living and non-living beings. In this video work, it is pointed out that the concepts of freedom, equality and justice are suspended.
In addition to this video work, the artist establishes an interactive installation that allows viewers to suspend the concepts they think are suspended. In this respect, the work “Suspended” becomes a platform.
