Lot Essay

'In the dark scenes illuminated by the light of chiaroscuro, alternate identities come together and re-position themselves each time, but don't reveal their mutual secret. Although the figures appear frozen in time, each new scene unseals the extraordinary potentials sustained by an ordinary moment.'
(Burçak Bingöl, 2013).
