Blog 91: Remembering our people landscape

‘The Portrait of Sakip Sabanci’ by Kutlug AtamanIMG_1743

With ‘selfies’ and a ‘look at me’ culture, it was a welcome relief to find a piece of work at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, which was a reminder about the people around us.10,000 LCD panels, hung from the ceiling like a large sheet quivering in the wind. ‘The Portrait of Sakip Sabanci’ by Kutlug Ataman was a work, which really focused on people, but it was the people whom Sabanci had encountered before his death 15 years ago. It was a reminder of my own people landscape and a great choice for the exhibition.
