A Place of Non-Place tells about real and fictional spaces, physical and imaginary boundaries, straight and reverse perspectives. Usually taking their biographies as a starting point in their own practice, the artists Hamza Halloubi (Morocco, 1982) and Servet Koçyigit (Turkey, 1971) create new narratives and draw original scenarios by tracing visible and invisible lines between the memory of the past and the possibilities of the future.
Hamza Halloubi (1982 in Tangier, Morocco). He studied visual art at La Cambre, Brussels. and at HISK (Higher Institute for Fine Arts) in Ghent, Belgium. He is currently resident in Rijksakademie, Amsterdam. Hamza Halloubi lives and works in Amsterdam, Brussels and Tangier.
Servet Koçyiğit (1971, Kaman, Turkey). He studied art at Gerrit Rietveld Academy, Amsterdam. He was participated in artist residency program at De Ateliers Amsterdam, Holland (1999). Since then he lives and works between Amsterdam and Istanbul.
Corridor Project Space is an initiative where cultural narratives, history and collective memory can be shared with the public in a dialogue between contemporary art. We initiate projects where artists, writers, curators, activists and theorists can meet, think and work on a project together with the aim to blend practices in the exhibitions.
Corridor Project Space has gained the support of SAHA Dernegi within the grant program established in order to support the Sustainability of Independent Art Initiatives for the period of 2016-2017.
