"(...) A double meaning can be spoken of for the word terminal. The first signifies a functional space: The place where vehicles such as buses, planes, trains initially pick up or finally drop off their passengers. The second meaning is the period of temporary intervention for patients who can no longer recover. In both cases, it’s a matter of the power of emphasis on impermanence. This situation underlines the boundedness of human life.

There is much to be said about the Terminal exhibition standing in such a position in relation to life. Because the created theme directly affects the view of the works. In the press release of the exhibition, statements such as "the circular structure of life" and "the terminal is a stop we all wait for" also draw particular attention.

So, first of all, it is necessary to bring up the connection between life and death. (...)"

 

- İlker Cihan Biner

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.
