(1981,Konya) Tangency… To pass something closely or to touch a subject perfunctorily. In other words, straying around rather than penetrating into a concept or situation. In his 2011 series Fine Tuning, we witness the intricate network of relations between the humanity and architecture as the art form in which ideologies are read most easily, when we see a UFO that goes tangent to the Ataturk Culture Center in the foreground, which is recently in architecture focused politics, or a plane that is tangent to the Haydarpaşa Terminal Building which was damaged by a dubious fire. © Fırat Arapoğlu
