Knots and Syllables / Düğümler ve Heceler (Mixed Media) – Damla Tamer
November 20 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 11:00 am on Sunday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until December 4, 2022
Damla Tamer is a visual artist born in Istanbul, Turkey and currently practicing on the unceded Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh territories (Vancouver). Works in this exhibition deal with language – implying a group of written and spoken symbols but also a mode in which to order, manage, anticipate, and make sense of things. Many works in the exhibition respond to the political history of Turkey after the 2013 Gezi protests and manifestations of a rising neoliberal authoritarianism. The interference of legal documents in the order of human activities, the breaking down of felt linearity of time in the face of violent events, and the constant transformation of anger’s inward and outward dimensions are some of the themes explored through the works.
