When the Lion Comes Out of the Shade

When the Lion Comes Out of the Shade

Always attentive to confronting socio-cultural, identity, behavioural and geopolitical issues that affect not only the Turkish situation - to which he is certainly linked - but which generally affect today's cultural history, Koçyiğit rediscovers the contaminations in art of very topical issues, such as the experience of emigration, the sense of uprooting, the balances between individual and community, and the vulnerability of humankind. With a lexical sophistication closely connected to an authentic emotional essentiality, the artist translates the wounds of a society that appears to struggle to find its own equilibrium, perhaps too weakened by a fragmentary identity forced by coercive situations such as the abandonment of one's land due to wars, abuses or the phantom of colonialism. In this fragile emotional see-saw, the great historical sensitivity of Servet Koçyiğit becomes basic for understand the value of the earth as repository and custodian of cultural memory.
