Helke Misselwitz: The Poet's Wife
The artist Güler Yücel has found her refuge on the Turkish peninsula of Datça. In her paintings, she shows herself as a chronicler of an everyday life that bears witness to the archaic nature of the landscape and rituals.
In sunlit images, Helke Misselwitz traces these mythological tales of the region and sings a hymn to the women who – in defiance of patriarchal and political dogmas – cast their own nets.
