Exhibit reveals the complexity of love
ISTANBUL - Hürriyet Daily News
Servet Koçyiğit’s solo exhibition, “Love and Other Matters,” will be hosted by RAMPA until Oct. 20. The exhibition includes his recent work as well as some pieces that have yet to be presented in Turkey. The exhibition aims to address questions such as how romanticism is perceived and how emotion is socialized and presented in a culture through gender. In Koçyiğit’s art the ways in which aspects of womanhood and manhood contradict each other function as a conceptual bridge between the artist and his audience. Through a direct relationship with everyday, domestic life in Turkey Koçyiğit’s exhibition becomes a semantic map composed of personal codes that reflect back onto their viewer like a mirror.
