Book Description

Impossible Homecoming is a retrospective exhibition of artist and poet Etel Adnan, whose life spanned nearly a century. Curated by Serhan Ada and Simone Fattal, the exhibition includes ceramics, carpets, leporellos, oil paintings, drawings, prints, and a film by the artist who “has mastered more than one medium.” Visitors can also listen to recorded interviews made with the artist at various points in her life.

The publication accompanying the exhibition includes the writings of the curators Serhan Ada and Simone Fattal, as well as a short text written by the artist Etel Adnan for the exhibition and an article titled About the End of the Ottoman Empire. In addition, the publication features Hans Ulrich Obrist’s article titled Ever Etel, Jean Frémon’s article titled The Worlds of Etel Adnan, Jalal Toufic’s preface to Etel Adnan’s Arab Apocalypse book, and Theodoros Terzopoulos’s text titled The Colour of the Word. The publication also presents a comprehensive biography of the artist with illustrations of the displayed work.
