Erinç Seymen

Homo Fragilis

Zilberman Gallery is proud to announce Erinç Seymen's solo exhibition “Homo Fragilis”. The artist's first solo exhibition at Zilberman Gallery is on show from September 13 to November 4, 2017 at the gallery's main exhibition space in Mısır Apartmanı, Istanbul.

The title “Homo Fragilis”, meaning "fragile man" in Latin, was chosen to investigate the idea of safe symbiosis and promises of prosperity through the essential ties of family and ownership. The exhibition facilitates a debate on the social destiny of a person who has to choose between the sheltered route of coexistence and property accumulation, and the challenges and risks of survival on their own. The transformation of luxury into needs and needs into luxury is like a rampant spirit haunting the show.
