Tranquil Garden
Linen fabric, digital printing on fabric

In this work, the tulip garden symbolizing the place where Nancy Atakan emigrated joins with the visual dance choreography that she made for her family who embraced her. 

Artist Can Küçük describes this work as follows:
“Flowers, which are every second constantly moving towards blooming and decaying, can only rest in a fabric pattern. Nancy reaches out with a choreography in collaboration with the flowers and with them shares the opportunity to stop time. In contrast to flowers repeated at equal distances, separated from life for the sake of timeless beauty, Nancy conveys to us the vitality of imperfect life with her static but varying movements.”
