KAYA explores human experiences of displacement, drawing on the strength and resilience of those searching for belonging in a new community.
In the early 1900s, forced migration of Anatolian Greeks left Turkish village, Kayaköy, as a ghost town. One hundred years later, Turkey is at the epicentre of the Syrian Refugee Crisis, holding over 3.2 million Syrian refugees.
Ceyda Tanc was compelled to make a work that will provoke audiences to reflect on global scale of displacement, by drawing on experiences and stories within their own communities.
