Suzan Pektaş's third solo exhibition, 'Naomi', brings the journey of Naomi Iye Kargbo, whose story the artist has been following since 2017, to the audience at Barın Han.
Enriching her narrative by using different disciplines in her project exhibition 'Naomi', Suzan Pektaş is also looking for a self-portrait following Naomi's footsteps. Naomi Iye Kargbo is a lively young woman from Sierra Leone. She fled from Ebola in 2015, and settled in Istanbul with boundless determination and dreams in her head.
The project, which is shaped around topics such as migration, integration, dreams and the geography of dreams, includes works from different disciplines such as video, collage and installation by the artist, who is after getting to know people through photography and reflects this to her art practice.
