Emel Akin: Angels
Emel Akın's solo show titled "Angels" will run between 10 - 23 May 2007 at Pi Artworks, Ortakoy main gallery. Gallery hours are 10.00 - 19.00 except Sunday and Monday or by appointment. Akın feels concept of the show is best described by the poem "Angel" by William Blake: The Angel I dreamt a dream! What can it mean? And that I was a maiden Queen Guarded by an Angel mild: Witless woe was ne'er beguiled! And I wept both night and day, And he wiped my tears away; And I wept both day and night, And hid from him my heart's delight. So he took his wings, and fled; Then the morn blushed rosy red. I dried my tears, and armed my fears With ten-thousand shields and spears. Soon my Angel came again; I was armed, he came in vain; For the time of youth was fled, And grey hairs were on my head.
