At BAR Open Studios, Rehan Miskci presents Foto Yeraz*, an extension of her quest for new meanings in the tradition of studio photography and its connection to her Armenian identity. Foto Yeraz is a fictitious and vacant photo studio, where figures are absent, but spatial elements, such as large scale backdrops and props, still continue to exist, in fact they convert from serving as objects and start acting as subjects instead.
*Yeraz means “dream” in Western Armenian.
