Serenity by Can Dagarslanı

Can Dağarslanı, known from the 'Identities' series, has recently featured a new project titled 'Serenity'. Dağarslanı combined an elderly couple with shorts and striped socks with a wonderful vision.

There is no room for calmness in our accelerating lives these days. It is fair to say that serenity became the victim of our daily lives that is over shadowed by the norms of the modern world . Well, is it not possible for calmness to be seen as a source that enriches and makes life easier? There sure is a strong bond between people and their experiences in terms of shaping one another. Yet, is it only possible to reach serenity while getting old? I made this series, which questions the existence of a practical way of life in serenity, in the Bauhaus school of Dessau . The starting point of the series became the contrast I wanted to create between the models and the three main colours of Bauhaus that are red, blue and yellow, while bringing out the organic changes of perception that is evident in my works.
