Bahadir Aksan ‘Daffodil’
Book creates space to ponder period of life, where experience and joy are juxtaposed with stereotypes related to inevitability and senility. In works exhibited, senility is perceived as a period of gained experience, memory, reflections, dignity and courage. Contemporary society is inseparable from social networks and cult of youth, however this cult exposes problem of aging society. This inevitable process is considered as something that should be stopped or reversed. Fragility, decay and mortality becomes synonyms of senility, although they represent just a tiny fraction of this period of life.
