Carla Mercedes Hihn is artist in residence in Istanbul. The program is hosted by the City of Berlin in behalf of the friendship between Istanbbul and Berlin.
Hihn was facing the uprisings around Gezi Park in the past two weeks. The artist created paintings on glas by tranforming photograpghs. In the exhibition you get the glimpse of transparency. The transperancy is broken through the reflection of oneselfs physical appearence. The audience is invited to create comments on the walls.
Thomas Büsch, Asena Hayal and Sabine Küper-Büsch contributed a Video featuring artist Mehmet Güleryüz and his view on the uprisings http://senseoftime.inenart.eu/?p=4186
The exhibition is a sensitive comment on vivid times you shouldn’t miss.
