opening during Amsterdam Art Weekend
During the conception of Parabéns, Leylâ Gediz finds herself at a turning-point, as she exchanges her home city Istanbul for Lisbon. Parabéns, roughly translated into ‘congratulations’ in Portuguese, expresses an exchange of its own: one of celebration, but also anticipation. After its utterance, the word lingers full of expectation between one person and another. In the exhibition at AKINCI, a similar lingering is tangible in-between the works of Leylâ Gediz, constantly on the verge of softly pushing or pulling the viewer into possible ways of understanding.
