Things We Learn from Ali
Artist Anıl Olcan travelled to Hatay in southern Turkey to visit the family of Ali Ismail Korkmaz (1994-2013). He considers the art works created to remember the young activist and explores the acts and silences of memory that translate the collective dynamics of protest to a quieter yet no less powerful register.
Anıl Olcan graduated from the Department of Photography and Video at Bilgi University. He took class Sociology while studying Photography and Video. After his graduation, he participated in many collective exhibitions. He held his first solo exhibition titled ‘’Out of Rooms’’ in 2017. He continues to work on language, public space and conflict solutions; nowadays he produces an art work for a project related to forced disappearances in Turkey.
