An Astronomical Determination of the Distance Between Two Cities

Heba Y Amin

January 7, 2017 – February 18, 2017

Galeri Zilberman, İstiklâl Caddesi, Mısır Apt. No. 163, D. 5 and 10 (second and third floors), Galatasaray, Beyoğlu


This is Heba Y Amin’s second solo exhibition at Galeri Zilberman. In a two-part project, Amin looks at the historical paradigms of technology and urban development in relation to contemporary migratory paths.

By employing cartographic research and landscape surveillance, Amin critiques the predatory view of landscape and the exoticization of women’s bodies in relation to geography. The project proposes a visual allegory focusing on architectural fragments and sexual desires to challenge colonial histories.
