The “Light the Dark” exhibition will take place at Seğmenler Park, one of the prominent public spaces in Ankara’s Çankaya district, on Nov. 25, which is also International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women.
Organized by United Nations Women in collaboration with Ankara Metropolitan Municipality, Çankaya Municipality and the Embassy of Sweden in Turkey, the exhibition will use lighting designs to draw attention to different forms of violence against women.
Curated by Ekin Kılınç and Fırat Engin, the exhibition will be open to visitors between Nov. 25 and Dec. 10.
Spread throughout Seğmenler Park, the lighting installations will draw attention to different forms of violence against women including physical violence, economic violence, femicides, and domestic violence. Twelve well-known artists will carve a path at Seğmenler Park with 10 different installations, waiting for their visitors. Constructed with materials like conventional lightbulbs and neon, LED and spotlights, the exhibition blends harmoniously with the natural environment.
