GOZDE TEKIN

I have imagined a silent society:

No one talks, screams, shouts. Talking reduces the time for thinking. Words and sounds that come from mouth just fly to the sky and create extra pollution. Fine arts such as painting/ drawing, sculpture, poetry and music (only the instrumental kind) are used as means of communication. Beside music, the only sounds one can hear are either from nature; animals, wind, etc. or non-living things. Since visualising thoughts takes huge part of the way of relating with others, one have to be perfect in this to explain oneself clearly, of course if one wants to be understood. The children directly start at fine arts school, again no one talks but everybody learns.

From foot to head

from Thursday, March 17th to Wednesday, April 20th 2016

GALLERIA ARTEPASSANTE STAZIONE PORTA VENEZIA Railway station Porta Venezia, Milano Entrance METRO corner Buenos Aires/Tunisia

The exhibition From foot to head originates in the course of Project Methodology of the MA Degree in Fashion and Textile Design NABA (Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti Milano, Italy). The course inspiration has a root sprouting from Cinzia Ruggeri insight on the desire of everyone to “leave a trace, a sign, a message” Cinzia Ruggeri challenge her students to think of a possible footprint that encompasses the personality of their alter ego. These visions are materialised through the manual construction of the elements that constitute the identity: the footprint, the shoe, apparel and accessory. All elements are hand-made, using a methodology that favours intuition and a taste for storytelling. The exhibition reveals these quiet and poetic presences.

GOZDE TEKIN:

The story of this work starts with my mother’s embroideries:  I’ve been witnessing how one single thread can have a beautiful transformation.
I use this technique on my old family photos to revive the people portrayed and make them travel to our present, a dialogue between these ‘frames’ and ‘fashion’ gives them a unique voice.
(A project for Stefania Seoni)
