Light and Text Installation at Vane Gallery – Newcastle 2019

Posted by Tuğba Tirpan on Sunday, 14 July 2019

‘Unbeknownst’ is a #light and #text#installation piece I created to look at the ways in which we operate in our social interactions where mental health is still a taboo. Language is a tool we developed to communicate but in reality it can fall short under social rules & conventions. Sometimes we need to look in a ‘different light’ to see what might really be going on under the superficiality of daily #language and it’s crucial we work on creating stigma free social spaces before demanding people to ‘open up’, ‘speak up’ and ‘share’. Thank you @headsandtales_heritage For actively creating these spaces for artists and audiences alike.
