Fatma Bucak

Sticks and Stones

Pi Artworks London is pleased to present Fatma Bucak’s first solo exhibition in the UK, Sticks and Stones, curated by Nat Muller. A weekly in-gallery performance will accompany the work Black Ink (2016-17) with more details to follow.

“Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never break me,” hums the old nursery rhyme. Today, in an ever-polarising climate of assault on the press and free speech, words are increasingly used to break those who utter them. In Sticks and Stones Fatma Bucak addresses two of the most pertinent struggles of our times: for freedom of expression and freedom of movement. Through her photographs, videos and installations she shows how these two liberties are inextricably intertwined.
