Raziye Kubat's new exhibition, IRGAT (Laborer), which consists of four different groups of work, will open on November 19th at 6:00 p.m. at Gallery Apel.
Excerpts from Büşra Ersanlı's comprehensive article on The Laborer:
"Gurbet Kuşları (Birds of Exile) the artist says, 'is the unearthing of her forgotten joint work and bidding a fond farewell to the project.' These are mixed technique on wood. These works interplay word with image...a discussion between a painter and a poet. The poet looks at the painting and writes, the artist hears the poem and paints. Obviously they met in the motherland of exile. Purple-black prayers are on these paintings, along with those who fled and those who could not escape.
