Hush Gallery is hosting artist Didem Erbaş's first solo exhibition "Sukut-u hayal" (The Imagined Silence) until Dec. 5. The exhibition consists of collected objects and photographs, drawn from the artist's momentarily feelings, as well as her main medium of painting. Creating a dialogue with the assembled archive, Erbaş tells stories that have never been heard, seen or forgotten. The exhibition reflects the changes in the individual when hope in stories has been lost, and can be seen every day (except on Sundays and Mondays) at Hush Gallery between 11:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. In her exhibition, Erbaş creates narratives with the faces she sees on objects and photographs while problematizing the concepts of identity and memory. Through the artist's own experiences, she invites hopeless identities and memories to the exhibition area. The artwork on display offers the audience a chance to confront themselves via the artist's experiences. Transforming the gallery space with her "dark form" and inextinguishable "candle object," she sets forth her stance against her own hope. "The Imagined Silence" offers the experience of stories that have never been encountered and invites the audience to explore an artist's world that challenges hopelessness.

When: Until Dec.5

Where: Hush Gallery
