I have followed Rafael Lozano-Hemmer’s work for many years and have been inspired by his art projects and the ideas informing his art practice. The exhibition at Borusan Contemporary curated by Kathleen Forde is a rare opportunity to experience a wide range of Lozano-Hemmer’s art. In addition, Vicious Circular Breathing, commissioned by the Museum, brings a new dimension of risk to the experience of art, expressing the struggle by the people of Istanbul to maintain an open public sphere. This exhibition is a great gift to the people of Istanbul at a time of change.
