Destroy your house, Build up a boat, Save life, 2015

and Docks, 2014

A Century of Centuries at SALT Ulus presents a selection of the works that were gathered for the inaugural installation of this exhibition at SALT Beyoğlu. In Ankara the exhibition includes seven artistic positions, that have been formed in response to transformative moments, traumatic experiences and social transitions of the past that continue to resonate in and shape the present.

In the entrance space Hera Büyüktaşçıyan’s Docks (2014) look out to the Gençlik Park, yet metaphorically connect land and sea, life and death, loss and perseverance, past and future, known and unknown. Shown in the same space, aspects of Dilek Winchester’s work On Reading and Writing (2007-2015) delve deeper into issues of national identity and ideology in relation to language through the excavation of rare or marginalized texts that have suffered exclusion by both the Turkish literary canon and other nationally applied cultures.
