The film is based on interviews of 100 Thai teenagers age between 17-19 with diverse gender identities. They have shared their experiences, personal life, and attitude towards their social life in Bangkok, the capital of Thailand, where they have grown up in. The common theme of these stories is their coming of age, confusion with dreams and love, while parenting is the major factor. “#BKKY” is narrated through teenager’s interview by creating a new character named JoJo, a 17-year-old girl who represents all stories during the transitioning moment from 12th grade to university, the moment that they have many first experiences of life and simultaneously try to discover their true identities.
Organized in collaboration with the Giacometti Foundation, Paris, the exhibition explores Giacometti’s prolific life, most of which the artist led in his studio in Montparnasse, through the works of his early period as well his late work, including one unfinished piece. Devoted to Giacometti’s early works, the first part of the exhibition demonstrates the influence of Giovanni Giacometti, the father of the artist and a Swiss Post-Impressionist painter himself, on Giacometti’s output during these years and his role in his son’s development.
Among the most interesting themes in the oeuvre of Prassinos are cypresses, trees, and Turkish landscapes. The cypress woods in Üsküdar he saw every time he stepped out on the terrace of their house in İstanbul or the trees in Petits Champs must have been strong images of childhood for Prassinos.
A series of small and rather similar nudes Bedri Rahmi Eyüboğlu and Eren Eyüboğlu produced in the early 1930s almost resemble a ‘visual conversation’ that focus on a pictorial search. It is also possible to find the visual reflections of this earlier search in the synthesis Bedri Rahmi Eyüboğlu reached with his stylistic abstractions in the 1950s.
