RED PASSAGE

SOLO EXHIBITION AT YAPİ KREDİ CC

MARCH 10 - APRİL 15, 2012

CURATED BY BAŞAK ŞENOVA

Red Passage is a project that assimilates a critical approach to the power politics, values, hopes, sanctions, restrictions, and beliefs that surround us. In this project, Ali Cabbar has produced faceless icons based on the acquiescing of these values.

In Red Passage, Cabbar graphically renders the relationship between life and death. He links the acceptance and legitimization of death to the exploitation of these values. The artist's symbolically embellished icons express themselves through blood, flags,  borders or believes. The passage created in the site invites the viewer to a parade to greet the icons.
