Bana onu geri ver, Voodoo
Naz Köktentürk

Sergi: 07.02 – 10.03.2018

Mit ve ritüellerinden Orta Asya’da, Orta Doğu’da İslam ve Şaman kültürlerinin izinde, acıyı ve öfkeyi aktaran Naz Köktentürk bu kez farklı bir coğrafyada, Batı Afrika’da animizmin anavatanı Burkina Faso‘da bir başka ritüelin, Voodoo’nun izlerini sürdü. Sanatçının uzun süredir üzerinde araştırmalar yaptığı “mitler ve ritüeller” çalışmasının son durağı olan Burkina Faso’ya yapmış olduğu yolculuklar sırasında çekilen fotoğraflardan oluşan “Bana onu geri ver, Voodoo” adlı sergi; bölge kültüründe sürekli karşımıza çıkan voodoo ritüellerini incelemektedir. Sanatçı genelden özele kara büyünün simgelerinde kişisel acıların, saplantıların ama en yoğun olarak tutkuların hikayelerini sorgulamaktadır. Fotoğraf sanatçısı Naz Köktentürk’ün kişisel proje sergisi “Bana onu geri ver, Voodoo” 7 Şubat – 10 Mart 2018 tarihleri arasında BLOK art space Çukurcuma’da gezilebilir.


“Her şey bir kuvvet çatışmasından ibarettir.
Tutku tendir.
’Ya benim olacaksın ya toprağın’ der.
Bedel ödetir.”

Bring him back to me, Voodoo
Naz Köktentürk

BLOK art space Çukurcuma
Exhibition: 07.02 – 10.03.2018


With her projects photographer Naz Köktentürk reflects the pain and anger by following the myths and rituals in Islamic and Shaman cultures in Middle East and in Central Asia regions. In her recent works Köktentürk traces another ritual called “Voodoo” which can be traced in a different region, West Africa, especially in the capital of animism Burkina Faso. “Bring him back to me, Voodoo" exhibition includes photographs that were taken during her Burkina Faso visit which is the last stop of the artist's long term research on "myths and rituals". With this exhibition Köktentürk examines Voodoo rituals that are constantly confronted in the culture of this region. From the general to personal; artist questions the sorrows, the obsessions but mostly the stories of passion through the symbols of dark magic. Photographer Naz Köktentürk's solo project exhibition "Bring him back to me, Voodoo" can be visited between 7 February – 10 March 2018 at BLOK art space’s Çukurcuma venue.


“Everything is about a conflict of power.
Passion is flesh.
It says ‘If I can’t have you, no one can’
Makes you pay the price.”
