Soft Solidarity in Wonderland
I had the pleasure to create 3 new works for the SoS (Soft Solidarity) Assembly. This was a challenging and fun project as I had very limited time to produce the large scale works. Nights were drawing, days were printing. I was inspired by the title of the gathering and focused on what these words mean to me independent from each other. I collaborated with old time friend Berkay Yahya, who drew the Arabic calligraphy on the back side of each work.
SoS Assembly is a gathering of local artists and activist groups as well as a process-based exchange of ideas, sentiments, and values of solidarity, a virtue we consider crucial at this point in time. From November 12th to 14th November 2020, a social and discursive platform shall be created at Betonhalle (silent green) within the framework of SoS (Soft Solidarity), the eponymous two-year exhibition program at Galerie Wedding – Space for Contemporary Art (2019-20).
Conceptual text by curators Övül Ö. Durmuşoğlu, Solvej Helweg Ovesen and Kathrin Pohlmann.
