LADY IN RED – KIRMIZILI KADIN

On one of the first days of the Gezi protests in Istanbul, May 2013, the architect Ceyda Sungur was brutally attacked with teargas by a policeman .
The photograph of the attack, taken by Orhan Orsal (Reuters), became an icon of the Turkish resistance and spread rapidly all over  the internet.
This work is a collage of the many ways in which this icon appeared in social media, the press and the public space.
