“absencexpresence” focuses on Aslı Narin’s and Gürkan Mıhçı’s 24-hour-experience on Eastern Express train journey, from Ankara to Kars. The artists took off with the intention of collaboration and art production. As Maurice Merleau-Ponty claims that the painter changes the world into paintings by lending his body to the world*, Aslı Narin and Gürkan Mıhçı take this phenomenon to its maximum in their collaboration.
