Gavur Mahallesi Exhibition ­čľî´ŞĆGavur Mahallesi Sergisi

Hello everyone, friends. I hope you are enjoying these sunny days. We decided to spend Sunday in the center of Izmir with my wife @bilginhilal. Normally, we prefer quiet and peaceful places. The reason for this is actually the parking problem. Because I hate looking for parking spaces. On the way, I thought of the multi-storey car park. After parking the vehicle, we walked a little in Kordon. Then I thought of the Gavur Mahallesi Exhibition, which we wanted to go to but never had the opportunity to do. My wife and I had passed by this place before. However, we did not have the opportunity to see the exhibition, as it was always evening. There may be those who remember. In one of my wife's previous posts, there were suitcases stuck between the stones. This remained a question mark in the minds of some of us. Let me give you some information about this with my own comments. Ôś║´ŞĆ

Herkese merhaba arkada┼člar. Umar─▒m bu g├╝ne┼čli g├╝nlerin tad─▒n─▒ ├ž─▒kar─▒yorsunuzdur. Bizde e┼čim @bilginhilal ile pazar g├╝n├╝n├╝ ─░zmir merkezinde ge├žirelim dedik. Normal ┼čartlarda sakin ve huzurlu yerler tercih ederiz. Bunun sebebi de ara├ž park problemi asl─▒nda. ├ç├╝nk├╝ park yeri aramaktan nefret ederim. Yolda akl─▒ma katl─▒ otopark geldi. Arac─▒ park ettikten sonra Kordon'da biraz y├╝r├╝d├╝k. Daha sonra akl─▒ma gitmek isteyip bir t├╝rl├╝ f─▒rsat bulamad─▒─č─▒m─▒z Gavur Mahallesi Sergisi geldi. Daha ├Ânce e┼čimle buran─▒n ├Ân├╝nden ge├žmi┼čtik. Ama her defas─▒nda ak┼čam oldu─ču i├žin sergiyi g├Ârme f─▒rsat─▒m─▒z olmad─▒. Hat─▒rlayanlar olabilir e┼čimin ├Ânceki payla┼č─▒m─▒n birisinde ta┼člar─▒n aras─▒na s─▒k─▒┼čm─▒┼č valizler vard─▒. Bu baz─▒lar─▒m─▒z─▒n akl─▒nda soru i┼čareti olarak kalm─▒┼čt─▒. Bunun hakk─▒nda ┼čimdi sizlere kendi yorumlar─▒m ile birlikte bilgi vereyim. Ôś║´ŞĆ

The first question we asked the attendant as soon as we entered the exhibition area was whether these suitcases sandwiched between marble blocks had a special meaning. The official's answer was 'it symbolizes the lives caught between two societies/cultures and the way of migration'. We were very surprised by this sad answer. But when I thought about it, it made imaginative sense. Later, when I asked what the main theme was, the answer was "exchange". We thanked and started to examine the works in the exhibition. Inside, we first encountered suitcases and suitcases, which were sandwiched between the marble blocks outside. But the suitcases here were colorful. I guess because the people outside are in the open area, their colors have faded due to external factors such as rain, sun and wind. The exhibits were more colorful and striking. In fact, everywhere in this exhibition was quite colorful except for a few areas. All colors were harmoniously positioned in the works. As soon as we walked in, everywhere and everything caught our attention.

Sergi alan─▒na girer girmez g├Ârevliye ilk sordu─čumuz soru mermer bloklar─▒n aras─▒na s─▒k─▒┼čt─▒r─▒lm─▒┼č bu valizlerin ├Âzel bir anlam─▒n─▒n olup/olmad─▒─č─▒yd─▒. G├Ârevlinin cevab─▒ ise 'iki toplum/k├╝lt├╝r aras─▒nda kalm─▒┼č hayatlar─▒ ve g├Â├ž yolunu sembolize ediyor' oldu. Bu h├╝z├╝nl├╝ cevap kar┼č─▒nda ├žok ┼ča┼č─▒rd─▒k. Ama d├╝┼č├╝n├╝nce imgesel olarak mant─▒kl─▒ geldi. Daha sonra ana tema nedir sordu─čumda "m├╝badele" diye cevap geldi. Te┼čekk├╝r edip ba┼člad─▒k sergi i├žindeki eserleri incelemeye. ─░├žeride kar┼č─▒m─▒za yine ilk olarak d─▒┼čar─▒da bulunan mermer bloklar─▒n aras─▒na s─▒k─▒┼čt─▒r─▒lm─▒┼č valizler, bavullar ├ž─▒kt─▒. Ancak buradaki valizler renkliydi. San─▒r─▒m d─▒┼čardakiler a├ž─▒k alanda olduklar─▒ i├žin ya─čmur, g├╝ne┼č, r├╝zg├ór gibi d─▒┼č etkenlerden renkleri solmu┼č. Sergi i├žersinde olanlar daha renkli ve dikkat ├žekiciydi. Asl─▒nda bu sergide bir ka├ž alan harici her yer olduk├ža renkliydi. T├╝m renkler eserlerin i├žine ahenkle konumland─▒r─▒lm─▒┼čt─▒. ─░├žeri girdi─čimiz anda her yer, her ┼čey dikkatimizi ├žekmi┼čti.

While I was talking to my wife about what some of the works could mean, we couldn't understand how the time passed. It was clear that each work had a different meaning. However, although it is quite difficult to understand some of them, we carried out ideas based on the main theme of 'exchange'. I'm sure most of them had a sad story. In general, I think that topics such as separation, fatigue, longing, poverty are covered a lot. In fact, a part of the exhibition impressed me a lot. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't emotional. The work on display here consisted entirely of shoes. These shoes were probably about people who migrated. But on the other hand, it took me back to my childhood. I have thousands of memories on rubber shoes. The past unfolded before my eyes. The good thing is that my wife also knows these shoes. I immediately went and found Ermenek and Samsun production shoes and took their pictures.

Baz─▒ eserlerin ne anlama gelebilece─čini e┼čimle aram─▒zda konu┼čurken zaman─▒n nas─▒l ge├žti─čini anlayamad─▒k. Her bir eserin ayr─▒ bir anlam─▒ oldu─ču belliydi. Ancak baz─▒lar─▒n─▒ anlamak olduk├ža g├╝├ž olsa da ana tema olan 'm├╝badeleden' yola ├ž─▒karak fikirler y├╝r├╝tm├╝┼čt├╝k. Eminim ├žo─čunun h├╝z├╝nl├╝ bir hikayesi vard─▒. Genelde ayr─▒l─▒k, yorgunluk, ├Âzlem, yoksulluk gibi konular─▒n ├žok├ža i┼člendi─čini d├╝┼č├╝n├╝yorum. Asl─▒nda serginin bir b├Âl├╝m├╝ beni ├žok ama ├žok etkiledi. Duygulanmad─▒m desem yalan olur. Burada g├Âsterimde olan eser tamamen ayakkab─▒lardan olu┼čuyordu. Bu ayakkab─▒lar muhtemelen g├Â├ž eden insanlar─▒ anlat─▒yordu. Ama di─čer taraftan ise beni ├žocuklu─čuma g├Ât├╝rd├╝. Lastik ayakkab─▒lar ├╝zerinde binlerce an─▒m var. G├Âz├╝m├╝n ├Ân├╝nde belirdi mazi. G├╝zel taraf─▒ ise e┼čimin de bu ayakkab─▒lar─▒ biliyor olmas─▒. Hemen gidip Ermenek ve Samsun ├╝retim ayakkab─▒lar─▒ bulup resimlerini ald─▒m.

Incidentally, I would like to thank Ahmet G├ťNE┼×TEK─░N for his works for the exhibition. It was a different experience for us. After that, we will have the opportunity to visit more exhibitions. If anyone is interested, the exhibition continues until March 5, 2023. Also, those who want to watch can watch the video taken from the link I left below. Thank you too for taking the time for me.

S─▒ras─▒ gelmi┼čken sergi i├žin Ahmet G├ťNE┼×TEK─░N'e eserleri i├žin te┼čekk├╝r etmek isterim. Bizim i├žin farkl─▒ bir deneyim oldu. Bundan sonra daha ├žok sergi ziyaret etme f─▒rsat─▒m─▒z olur. ─░lgilenen arkada┼člar olursa sergi 5 Mart 2023 tarihine kadar devam ediyormu┼č. Ayr─▒ca izlemek isteyenler a┼ča─č─▒ya b─▒rakt─▒─č─▒m linkten ├žekilmi┼č videoyu izleyebilir. Sizlere de bana zaman ay─▒rd─▒─č─▒n─▒z i├žin te┼čekk├╝r ederim.
