Ugly Yelp, by the Swiss photographer and video-artist Olaf Breuning, is a video that mixes the aesthetic of the horror film made popular by films like The Blair Witch Project with characters that seem to have been taken from some freaked-out Scandinavian black metal band. The parodic nature of this mixture does nothing to lessen the threatening potential of the video, which presents scenes of self- destructive behaviour and wanton violence taken as entertainment by some adolescents.
A firm believer in the idea that a collection needs to be upheld at least by four generations and comparing this continuity to a relay race, Nahit Kabakcı began creating the Huma Kabakcı Collection from the 1980s onwards. Today, the collection can be considered one of the most important and outstanding examples among the rare, consciously created, and long-lasting ones of its kind in Turkey.
