RAAAF’s ‘Hidden Worlds’ Fire Installation Illuminates an Ancient Turkish Landscape

titled ‘hidden worlds’, RAAAF’s installation literally and figuratively reflects the worlds beneath cappadocia’s volcanic landscape. despite being used for millennia, the caves in the valley of ortahisar were abandoned only 40 years ago. installed within these ancient voids, a series of flames transform the site by simulating a human presence. once the sun goes down, the focus shifts from the volcanic landscape to the oppressed ancient cultures that once hid in these valleys.

the project, which forms part of the cappadox contemporary art festival, was curated by fulya erdemci and supported by the mondriaan fund for visual arts. Read More via DesignBoom.
