Serap Tok's 'And the Days Began to Walk' is the first exhibition I curated. Exhibition's name is a direct translation from Turkish edition of Eduardo Galeano's famous book; 'Children of the Days: A Calendar of Human History.'
With the support of A Room of One's Own (KABO/Kendine Ait Bir Oda), Serap Tok's first solo exhibition 'And the Days Began to Walk' was screened in KARANTİNA İzmir Art Space between January 22 and February 11, 2022. The exhibition featured the artist's paintings and installations from the 'Dreams', 'Invisible Cities' and 'Dust' series, as well as the new works she produced during the pandemic period. Serap Tok tells about the reflections of city walks and similar walking routes, thus the inner world of the urban image, in her own way.
The catalogue texts from Murat Özdemir, Serap Tok, and me titled as 'Curator's Last Note.'
All works are used with permission from the artist.
