An American Dream Rehan Miskci and Sinan Tuncay

An American Dream exhibited in the HEREart Gallery from October 15 - December 19, 2015.

About the show

Starting off with a visual aesthetic resembling the screen tests, An American Dream oscillates between still and moving, with an anxious approach to classic Hollywood imagery. The artists’ physical effort to fit into the stereotypical representations becomes a metaphor for their cultural adaptation, and finally exhausts the process before achieving the ultimate goal. The work could be seen as the struggle of two non-Americans who grew up under the influence of American culture.
