Hilal Polat’s imagined and undefined mythological characters in enchanted and unusual forms express concepts of sense of seeing, the act of looking, expression perspective and perception. The artist puts her way of seeing at the center, rather than how others perceive or see things.

The Lesser Evil is an examination in seeing. It’s an effort to understand how the stories others tell us have made us grow accustomed to a certain type of memorisation. It is a period analysis of the act of cutting down speed and of old perspectives, in this new age where even our taste is condemned to the perspective of others.
