#CIGalleries16 | ALAN Istanbul Kezban Arca Batibeki is known for her paintings that probe themes of #FemaleEmpowerment and conflict in pop culture imagery, through depictions of women as faceless or overtly sexualized, often in various states of undress. Batıbeki references pulp fiction, detective stories, and #MurderMysteries in these works, which are consequently infused with dark undertones, her characters brandishing weapons or chasing one another. #CI16 #ALANIstanbul
