In this workshop, inspired by Kıymet Daştan’s work in the exhibition Crystal Clear, “I Am Afraid To (Not) Forget” derives from an experimentation with melting discs —archival devices that now are becoming obsolete— creating crystalline disfigurements, we create art with recyclables. The geometric shapes in the materials we select will serve to guide our new design. We view each recyclable as a puzzle piece, create our design through trial and error, and use our imagination as we learn about upcycling and improve our motor skills.

The Battle of Varna

The Battle of Varna

Over the years of 1864 through 1876, Stanisław Chlebowski served Sultan Abdülaziz in Istanbul as his court painter. As it was, Abdülaziz disposed of considerable artistic talents of his own, and he actively involved himself in Chlebowski’s creative process, suggesting ideas for compositions –such as ballistic pieces praising the victories of Turkish arms. 

Return from Vienna

Return from Vienna

Józef Brandt harboured a fascination for the history of 17th century Poland, and his favourite themes included ballistic scenes and genre scenes before and after the battle proper –all and sundry marches, returns, supply trains, billets and encampments, patrols, and similar motifs illustrating the drudgery of warfare outside of its culminating moments.
