In todays's environment, just like each audience, I find myself in a labyrinth with a different act and emotion each time I encounter with a piece of art for the very first time. This is the labyrinth of world of either the artwork or the artist. Within the labyrinth, what do you feel? What is the intencity of your feelings? Where and how these feelings carry you? Take you? The state of questioning this situation is the main theme forming the exhibition Labyrinth.'' Horasan, Istanbul, 2012

The works in "Labyrinth" can be considered as the extention of Horasan's "Crash Series" which he has created in interaction with the works of the artists that he has faced many times during his artistic life.
