‘Safe Home’ @Qbox Gallery
Opening: Tuesday 4 April
Runs: 5 April – 20 May, 2017

A fail-safe vault housing global food crops for a post-apocalyptic global wipeout, a Turkish female prison and an artist’s home are the sites featured in Ali Kazma’s three short films – Safe (2016); Prison (2013); Home (2015) – comprising his exhibition at Qbox gallery. Through a meditative approach using silent continuous shots, Kazma explores this diversity of spaces, void of human presence, that dictate internal and external boundaries of existence. Kazma’s poetic viewpoint takes us from the isolated and uninhabited underground structure on an island off the Svalbard archipelago, to an operational prison’s impervious building to the interior of a museum-like home, revealing stage by stage the secret realities different spaces take on in relation to global circumstances, social relations and the self.
