Following the first project by Arturo Hernández Alcázar, the program Underneath the Arches will continue with an invitation to Hera Büyüktaşçıyan to create a new temporary installation devised specifically for the archaeological site.

Hera Büyüktaşçıyan’s practice focuses on the relationship between visible and invisible, in order to weave connections between identity, memory, space and time. She works as a storyteller, integrating metaphors from local myths with historic and iconographic elements from different geographies to open up new narrative spaces.
