“blue room” exhibition

In Attila Ilhan‘s novel Zenciler Birbirine Benzemez (Blacks Don’t Look Alike), Mehmed-Ali and his dreams of revolution come together with companions and imcompatibles, in Paris.

And later, maybe we can meet them in a blue room.

During the time I spent with the book’s voice and this space, I took a long look at Mehmed-Ali and Attila Ilhan’s traces.

With the hope to let the roads unfold themselves.
