Olgaç Bozalp - Leaving One for Another
Olgaç Bozalp deals with themes of transmigration and explores the disparate reasons behind it, from forced displacement in gentrifying communities or fleeing places of conflict, to simply going in search of opportunity, whether for financial betterment or personal expression. The series takes an abstract perspective on resettlement by mixing staged installations with documentary photography. The former show objects symbolic of one’s life and journey, while the latter is inspired by a mix of observations and personal stories gathered from travels to nearly 50 countries. Bozalp’s images represent the struggles of all people who uproot their lives in search of something better.
