PEER and LUX are delighted to join forces to present the first monographic exhibition by Turkish-born, Dutch-based artist belit sağ in the UK.


Working primarily with the moving image, belit sağ examines and interrogates ‘images of violence’ and the ‘violence of images’. Most of her works revolve around the role of images in the media and issues of representation and visibility. sağ tries to address larger political issues in a personal way, making them accessible to a broad public and playing with their proximity to daily life.

Whilst the exhibition at PEER (14 November 2018 – 26 January 2019) is centred around a new commission, what remains, that looks at her own archive from 2015 and the images of attacks in Turkish Kurdistan, BL CK B X: belit sağ at LUX will feature older works such as Ayhan and me (2016), if you say it forty times (2017) and disruption (2016).

In Ayhan and me, sağ explicitly addresses her own experience of censorship whilst making a video for an exhibition in Istanbul. Ayhan Carkin is a former police officer active in the Kurdish region in Turkey during the 1990s who claimed to have killed thousands of people. Originally the subject of the sağ’s censored video, Ayhan becomes an alibi for sağ to contemplate images of war and the politics of image making in Turkey, at the same time that the video documents its own censorship.

The exhibition at PEER is titled belit sağ: the image unseen, the image invisible, the image not shown, and previews on 15 November, 6-8pm. The exhibitions are accompanied by a series of events, including a screening at Birkbeck Cinema on 16 November. More details soon.

In collaboration with PEER and with the support of the Mondriaan Funds.
