Fatma Bucak | And men turned their faces from there
David Winton Bell Gallery
November 19, 2016 – February 5, 2017
Born in Iskenderun, on the Turkish-Syrian border, Fatma Bucak makes videos, performances, photographs, and installations that grapple with the poetics and pragmatics of borders—their structure, implications, and human consequences. Previous works from the Turkish-Armenian border, the Mexican-U.S. border, the Dakhla refugee camp in Western Sahara, and the Tuz Gölü in central Anatolia are presented alongside a series of new works addressing media censorship, state violence, and mass migration. This exhibition is Bucak’s East Coast premiere.
This exhibition has been made possible through the generous support of SAHA Association, Istanbul, Fondazione Sardi per l'Arte, Torino, and the Brown Arts Initiative.
