GROUP EXHIBITION | 'OPEN SPACES | SECRET PLACES', GROUP EXHIBITION BIENNIAL OF BRUSSELS (BOZAR), BRUSSELS,

Nil Yalter takes part in the group exhibition titled “Open Spaces | Secret Places” as part of the International Photography Biennial of Brussels (BOZAR), curated by Gabriele Schor the exhibition brings together works from the SAMMLUNG VERBUND, Vienna. Through their photographs and installations, contributing artists examine our relationship with space and take the viewer through historical locations, emotionally charged spaces, imaginary, real or reconstructed places. The exhibiton showcases Nil Yalter’s 1976 dated installation titled “Orient Express”. When the actual Orient Express stopped serving the route between Paris and Istanbul in 1977, one of the main traveling routes of the labor migration in Europe was shut down. Nil Yalter took one of the last trains from the Paris train station Gare de Lyon to Istanbul. Originated during this train ride, Yalter’s multipart installation consists of a 16 mm film, drawings, polaroids and photographs and oscillates with artistic sensibility and scientific precision between documentation and fiction.
