“The exhibition with a huge appetite!”

WHO IS EATING WHO?
Everyone’s eating each other in the character design exhibition “HAM HUM” exhibition by Ömer Ozan Erdoğan and Creative Bonanza. Lucca, one of the most popular venues in Bebek will be the host of the exhibition on Thursday February 9th. Characters single handedly sewn by Ömer Ozan Erdoğan tell their stories in the exhibition formed by jean, fake leather, cloth and fiber.
A crocodile eating a human being, a human eating a cat, a cat eating a lobster, a lobster eating a donkey… It may sound like a deviant food chain… It actually is a dining table exhibiting the frenzied moments of our daily lives. People … we start “eating” each other in every opportunity we can find. Some are after personal reputation, some are just feeding, some are trying to blend in and some are looking for something to attack. The reality is that the reasons are not important, but the results… This is the case because, well, any reason might push one to do such things. They are all pieces of a greater being, a system, and no one is ever questioning that system. They have accepted their positions in the social food chain. Yet again this chain resembles a vicious circle where the person at the top is not very clear.
None of these characters “eating” each other is foreign to us. They are all people amongst us. To learn more about Kız Takoz, Yersen Lüpen, Cızbız, Eftelya and all the other HAM HUM characters, do not miss this exhibition. HAM HUM will be hosted by Lucca for two months, starting on February 9th.
