A contemporary interpretation of Yapi Kredi collection by Necmi Sönmez, examined through 12 sections, which also attempts to forge bridges between the historic nature of the collection and the country's past.

About

Developed as a tribute to Yapı Kredi's art collection in the refurbished Yapı Kredi Culture and Arts, Helix transcends the configuration of an ordinary exhibition, interpreting as it does this commercial enterprise's enormous contribution to the country's arts and culture. Helix's heart beats in creative writing -and poetry in particular- that endeavours to surpass imposed boundaries. Its organic structure that distinguishes it from customary exhibition design comes to the fore at this point: its heart, arteries and nerve endings intend to generate an entirely new blood group. That blood is the twelve original texts, written by twelve different litterateurs, which formed the backbone of Helix.
