SAHA supports Leylâ Gediz's book, Layer From Background that accompanies her solo exhibition of the same title, which took place between April 2 and May 14, 2022 inside the EPUL building of Lisbon’s Martim Moniz square, hosted by Tecla PLAY Association. In the deserted courtyard of the 60-year-old building by Bartolomeu da Costa Cabral, which had lost its function as a passage ever since being closed to the public, Gediz presented the paintings she produced during the pandemic, whilst still a foreigner in Lisbon, for the first time. Her project was awarded the support of the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation. The book, which is designed by Ana Luísa Bouza, goes beyond documenting the exhibition, it contains two original texts by Övül Ö. Durmuşoğlu and Luíza Sol, and a full transcript of the conversation between the still-living architect Costa Cabral and Luísa Sol.TECLA PLAY - Associação Cultural 2022
