Hush hush hush, daddy sleeping
As part of a collaboration between the Pernod Ricard Foundation and the Beaux-Arts de Paris, Bahar Kocabey, a 3rd year Marie José Burki studio student, is participating in the "L'Avancée" program with her work Hush hush hush, papa sleeping, a portrait of a father who has just fallen asleep after cutting up apples to dry in the sun.
Located in the heart of the café-library of the new Pernod Ricard Foundation, l'Avancée is a hanging space dedicated to emerging artists, a way to extend the exhibition space into the living space.
Each month, until July 2022, a work will be presented and the artist will accompany his or her hanging with an exchange with the public.
As a 3rd year student at the Burki studio, Bahar Kocabey's visual practice focuses on portraiture and pattern through drawing, painting and ceramics.
These devices allow her to evoke a narrative and to highlight a culture often thought of as subaltern to other cultures. To do so, she relies in particular on Engin Sustam's definition of "Kurdish subalternity."
Opening on Thursday, April 14.
