The exhibition consists of three video installations. The first one is a three channel projection realised at the site of the archaeological excavations at Karahan Tepe, Turkey, where the oldest site of worship — dating back to 10 thousand years BC and believed to be a cradle of civilisation — was discovered.
It was even before the neolithic revolution, before the beginning of agriculture and animal breeding, that the oval structures made of adhering megalithic pillars had been created there. What civilisation managed to accomplish this, who were the people who buried the sanctuary 1500 years later and why — remains a mystery.Zachęta – National Gallery of ArtZachęta
