Deniz Pasha - Blood Memory

Last days

May 27, 2021 – July 3, 2021


Ballon Rouge (Brussels) and The Pill (Istanbul) present Deniz Pas- ha’s “Blood Memory,” a dual-city and concurrent exhibition of a series of paintings made between 2019 and 2021. The paintings trace the reverberating effects of the Ottoman Em- pire’s policies towards African bodies. Deniz does not begin with the sordid history directly but rather looks in reverse, starting with the now - with African migrants and immigrants currently living in Turkey. Through portraiture, allegories, and motifs, Deniz echoes the ways in which the historical lineage of African labor and exis- tence is reflected in the segregated, invisible, and opaque lives of the immigrant workforce in Turkey today.
