Seda Hepsev’s exhibition titled “Stranger Than Paradise,” inspired by the movie with the same name directed by Jim Jarmusch in 1984, deals with the quest for a flawless therefore impossible space, translocation, transforming the memory and the body in the potential new space, and the processes of reconstruction and persuasion.

Consisting of paintings, patterns, and objects, the exhibition is composed of four installations titled “Preparation”, “Journey”, “Paradise”, and “A Year Later.” Although the titles create a sense of sequence, the construction of the exhibition and the incomplete images spilling over the paper or the canvas prevent certainty, framework, and borders. The element of water which provides journey and translocation in the exhibition opens the door for movement with figures placed near water, sea, or rivers.
