RED PASSAGE

Red Passage is a project that assimilates a critical approach to the power politics, values, hopes, sanctions, restrictions, and beliefs that surround us. Red Passage raises important issues from the current socio-political situations in Turkey. 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 are put into words sometimes through blood, through a flag, at times with a border, and sometimes with conviction

ON SPATIAL DESIGN

The passage, located in the gallery, lined up with the works salutes the viewer as if in a procession. While the spatial design of the exhibition guides the viewer to be an active participant of the project, it also underlines the architectural changes within Yapi Kredi Cultural Center.
