Darker Than Night

Fulya Çetin

September 30, 2016 – November 5, 2016

Sanatorium, Kemankeş Karamustafa Paşa Mahallesi, Mumhane Caddesi No. 67, Beyoğlu


In this solo exhibition, Fulya Çetin presents recent oil paintings and video installations that render visible the struggle of women within the system of male hegemony. The artist utilises metaphors from the stories of female prisoners who killed in order to escape male violence. As a result, her works transform images of celebration into a silent mourning.

Çetin drew inspiration from the following quote in Clarissa Estes’s book Women Who Run With the Wolves:

‘The vision a woman has for her own life can also be decimated in the flames of someone else’s jealousy or someone’s plain-out destructiveness toward here. Family, mentors, teachers, and friends are not supposed to be destructive if and when they feel envy, but some decidedly are, in both subtle and not-so-subtle ways. No woman can afford to let her creative life hang by a thread while she serves an antagonistic love relationship, parent, teacher, or friend.’
