Group Exhibition – Everything is gonna be alright

Group Exhibition – Everything is gonna be alright

This misrepresentation continued in the 2007 New Year exhibition, ‘Everything’s gonna be Alright’. For this show, the forty-two participants used Post-its to cover the texts and images already adhered to the walls, ceiling, and floor for the ‘All About Lies’ exhibition. Even though the Post-its conceal the lies, they can be easily removed to again bring the spectator face to face with lies. Composed of opposites such as good/bad, belief/disbelief, the exhibition brings into juxtaposition the hope that everything will be okay against a suspicion that it will not. The exhibition’s name came from a phrase, ‘Everything’s gonna be alright’, in Bob Marley’s song ‘No woman, no cry’. Written in 1975, this song represents the darkness against which both Turkey and Jamaica struggled during that problematic period characterized by torture and disappearances of suspects after their arrests.
