The two works on show will be “Last Stop” and “Fault Lines / Turkey / East / West”.
The former explores the diversity of London through the windows of its double decker buses emphasizing the way people use public space in a big city and taking advantage of the completely new perspective of this means of transport.
The second explores and questions the concept of East / West, the numerous and complex fault lines that characterize contemporary Turkey and global issues concerning urbanization and development.
