An exhibition on “good will”
The group show “Impudence of Good Intent” opens at artSümer on June 19th. The exhibition gathers Serra Behar, Zeynep Beler, Elif Boyner,Hera Büyüktaşçıyan, Özgür Erkök, Erol Eskici, Ahmet Doğu İpek, Kaan Kuley, Can Kurucu, Gümüş Özdeş and Ozan Türkkan.
The works of the exhibition focus on the idea of “good will” and the circumstances which surround it. The exhibition attempts to draw focus to the idea that social interaction starts with oneself and is a balancing act of the traffic created by the hundreds of identities we have within us to form our unity. With this balance comes a continual state of “being alert against oneself.” Work within the exhibition, curated by Nihan Çetinkaya, attests that one can only exist within this flow of traffic when one can sustain their good will with the spontaneity of an individual who experienced a pleasant childhood, without moving away from the role we have assigned to ourselves, as opposed to one who was forced to grow up too quickly.
