"Dear Passengers,

Thank you for waking up in the morning, wiping the burrs off your eyes, going to work or school, seeing, smelling, being sad, cheering, and knowing. This tenet given to you in the universe is also our reality: to Live. However, being born or dying is a necessity. We will just stand in this meeting, taking place on the rope stretched between them. You too will see that there is no time here.

You will see cigarettes around you, smoked in a hurry and thrown on the ground to get somewhere. Faces and eyes swollen from disturbed sleep, coffees drank in paper cups will be interrupted with longing. There will also be those crying among you. Just as we have been granted, you too will embrace with longing, those who come and go.

We will slowly come to light as if we were hiding behind a candle, those who break time with their hands will leave us. How many wars, gods, civilizations and empires have existed and perished to be present here.

 

Dear Passengers,

You've been here for years! Being in this terminal is your reality, ours and theirs.

Welcome, farewell…"

 

- Suleyman Iyigundostu

Can Akgümüş (1987, Ankara) studied economy in Selcuk University Faculty of Economics and Administrative Sciences. He uses photography as a tool to detect the cycle of the process of recording the apparent reality, and reproduction of it in relation to the memory, history and society. He aims to build an original way of expression while searching for the boundaries of photography through various methods of collage art. While he produces his artworks through frequent travels in order to make distant and interpretive observations on the impacts of memory, city life and the natural cycle of it on individuals, he also tries to discover new ways of connections between the individual and the collective memory. He lives and works in Ankara and Istanbul. He is also working as the director of Evliyagil Museum which is a contemporary art museum based in Ankara, Turkey.
