Seeing the Black Panther

Installation, Found object, illuminated lens, 13.5x16 cm, Stockholm-Istanbul, 2014

Seeing the Black Panther (2014) is an object installation about our perception of wildlife and its images. The small-sized found photo of a black panther on black background highlights the way we miss out on seeing the animal because of the indifferent stance towards the wildlife embedded in our culture, while the illuminated lens Deniz places in front of it makes the subject both physically and symbolically visible.
