Behind Mount Qaf

CANAN

September 12, 2017 – February 18, 2018

ARTER, İstiklâl Caddesi No. 211, Tünel, Beyoğlu


This solo show by CANAN, named after the legendary Mount Qaf of Arabic and Persian cosmology, takes the viewer on a journey through Heaven, Purgatory and Hell. The three levels of afterlife are literalized, with one floor for each: Heaven on the ground floor, purgatory on floor 1, and Hell on floor 2. Focusing on dualisms such as light/shadow, good/bad, internal/external, reality/imaginary and lightness/darkness, the exhibition includes works produced in various media, such as sculpture, photography, print, embroidery, video, installation, and miniature.
