Waiting for Exposure


Artist holding print (90 x 120 cm) created during
Every Me Adana Artist Residency curated by Mustafa Boğa.

This artwork shows the aforementioned working process: shot on a rooftop, waiting for the exposure of a print of a woman wearing a veil. The picture sits on a cushion and leans against a rusty metal beam. In the background, shadows are cast from what appear to be contemporary garments, juxtaposing a woman who seems to be derived from another time. The woman in the frame seems absent as her face is turned, as if she was hiding herself away. She seems to exist somewhere else, detached from this setup of everyday objects.
