Artist: Frank Smith
France, 52’, 2014
French with Turkish subtitles
Poet, writer of novels and radio documentaries, Frank Smith’s new work is the second part of a project involving a book. In March 2009, a man murdered ten people before ending his own life, on a journey from Kinston to Geneva, Alabama. Frank Smith interrogates this event by questioning the relationship between fact, narrative, image, and language. He revisits the road travelled that day using Google Earth, trying to make sense of the path of a serial killer, and combining the screening of the film with a live reading of his book.
The exhibition Look at Me! Portraits and Other Fictions from the ”la Caixa” Contemporary Art Collection examines portraiture, one of the oldest artistic genres, through a significant number of works of our times. Through the exhibition we will be sharing about the artists and sections in Look At Me!.
Ali Sami is born in Rusçuk in 1866, and moves to İstanbul. Because his family is registered in the Beylerbeyi quarter of Üsküdar, Ali Sami is also called Üsküdarlı Ali Sami. He graduates from the Mühendishane-i Berri-i Hümayun in 1866 and becomes a teacher of painting and photography at the school.
