Human emotion // Trauma

Year 2020
Yildiz Park, Istanbul

People are exposed to various traumas at various times in their lives; women are the most hiding asset in patriarchal structure. The women which is hiding her trauma makes both psychological and physiological misconceptions to the creatures she brought to the world, that is, to her child, in this context, it causes false coding in her child’s growing. As an individual asset, the child who grows up with wrong codes (regardless of male or female) passes these codes through to the next generation which born from herself or himself and this vicious cycle continues without ending.

Herman, explained the traumatic events that the woman did not notice because of  the perception of privacy that is defined by the society. ‘’A woman has experienced in her real life, the real situation of women’s life, was hidden in the confidential world and in confidential life. The crowning of the value of privacy created a strong barrier to consciousness and recreated women’s reality practically invisible. Talking about the experience in sexual or domestic life invited public humiliation, ridicule and suspicion. Women were silenced with fear and shame; the silence of the woman was conducive to all kinds of sexual and domestic exploitation ’’ (Herman, 2016, pg:35)

These unspoken events show the same effect as when a diseased cancer cell in our body doesn’t repair over time, affecting all other cells and causing death.Within the scope of this study,  the woman photos that I photographed in an abandoned winter garden and cancerous human cell photographs which containing various cancers diseases were recreated with digital collage technique.
