Šejla Kamerić’s body of work insists that the delicate and the sublime are not pushed aside during catastrophe or hardship but that they exist simultaneously, revealing a complex, psycho-geographic landscape, and the tenacity of the human spirit.
The title of the exhibition on view at Arter, “When the Heart Goes Bing Bam Boom”, is taken from the lyrics of a punk-rock song and evokes one of the basic dilemmas of love and life: the co-existence of exhilaration and a constant sense of insecurity. Curated by Başak Doğa Temür, the exhibition brings together works produced through various media, including video, photography, installation, and sculpture; and includes three new works, thus offering an overview of Kamerić’s practice.
