Leslie Hakim-Dowek,The City that Exploded Slowly 1, 2009



This group exhibition brings together three contemporary artists focusing on the representations of the Ottoman City: Aikaterini Gegisian, Leslie Hakim-Dowek and Paris Petridis.
In this exhibition, at the intersection of personal and history, the artists focus on Ottoman cities bridging East and West, past and present. Through various approaches including documentary photography or archival-based practice, some works focus on the legacies of and transitions from the Ottoman Empire and its multiple histories of Diaspora and erasure. Other works look at the transformations and forgotten sites of Ottoman cities articulated through post and transcultural memories.
