The exhibition not only examines a human's nature, but also investigates the relationship between human and the nature, which is vandalised day by day by the human himself.


Every living creature struggles for their life ceaselessly, because of their nature. For people, after they are born, this struggle includes actions, such as growing, learning, giving birth, raising their little ones, sharing their knowledge and dying eventually. It is possible to state that, since individuals of the modern world believe that they are the most important living things on the Earth, their struggle comes first, which let them act as if they are allowed to harm others. What is more striking here is that by damaging others, people actually destroy their own nature. Their constant attacks to the habitat they are living in, is actually a violation of one's own nature.

In relation to the subject, a well-known Turkish writer, Oğuz Atay perfectly reveals the irony of the relationship between human and the nature:
"People cut the trees and make paper out of them, and later they write 'save trees' on them"
