Self researcher Jale İris Gökçe/AngelRainbow brought a selection of her works on “HEP-SELF”, which she carried out between 2010-2022, into the digital space and brought them to the audience.
The artist describes his work that he carried to the digital field with these words:
Did someone say capitalism? The other slave-master dialectic, ALL corrected. A reclusive monk walks among us and says, like a shaman, from a field of fierce struggle; “What kind of equality can we talk about in a hierarchical relationship or a relationship of domination?” ALL on the ground. This is earthly. Continuing without missing the rhythm, pulse, sameness and otherness of life, sometimes deviating from its path. Contrary sometimes. Isn't it possible to think of all together life, which is poetry anyway? With a new insight. Wasn't it always like that? That is poetry. HEPolan… Can't the “poetry of life” be caught? What about those that happen suddenly? In the break, the ending, the oblivion? In life, which is a fleeting moment. Do we have the endurance and preparation? Our wisdom! Our courage! All poetry whispers this to us. In the purest, most ancient, purest form. By reminding ALL that it is the “art of the arts”. Without being trapped between-disciplines. Free. Only. Alone. It's all poetry. Maybe we need to rewrite the poem now. By pointing out that the other is actually poetry. But how can this be made possible? to purify? In which river? Maybe by returning to our essence, “the place where we hide ourselves”. Likewise, with a one-word, one-syllable and one-letter endless poem… With broken letters flowing on a black and white background… With what is here and what is not… ALL. Can this "becoming" be named? With his tune. When the voice withholds itself from us. Space. Music. Poem. Colour. But it's ALL black and white. Like a movie. With our pulse, our uneasiness, our words, our syllables and what we hide in our letters… Our alterity. Last click. ALL with what is, what will be… In our life on the production line… ALL with a one-syllable poem. ALWAYS. With respect to Nazım Hikmet, never forgetting the poem “I Want To Be Machined”. ALWAYS.
