FRAGILE PEACE

FRAGILE PEACE
Photo Description:
Living as a young girl in Turkey I am aware of violence within my country since many years, as well as of war in our close neighbour country, Syria. 'Peace is in danger all over the world'. That was the message I got with the bombs at Friday 13th in Paris. My intention with the composition of a dove of peace spreading its wings in front of walls I pasted with newspaper articles of the last few weeks was the following: Peace is so fragile and can fade away ...The black floor symbolizes 'the black hole' which could take peace away for a long time. First of all I cut many silhouettes in different size out of white paper. Each silhouette is unique. After that I used two types of wire to build the skeleton of the dove and covered it with stretch film on which I fixed the silhouettes with silicon.
