EYE LOVE YOU
Bianca Jane came to Turkey in 2018 with an art installation art for a festival of art and music at Bonjuk Bay.
The Golden Spiral Labyrinth was a stylized and inspiring version of the Labyrinth in Chartres Cathedral in France. She used a traditional symbol, popular across many cultures and civilizations for thousands of years, and shared it in a modern way.
After falling in love with the people, culture and creative spirit of Turkey, Bianca was inspired to create more art here.
Born in South Africa, a young adult in Australia. Then living in LA, NYC and Tulum, Mexico the past ten years, Bianca is a true global citizen, and creates
art through cultural fusion, highlighting the single truth that is common with all people. The quest for love, happiness, and kindness.
Immersing herself in the Turkish culture nothing spoke louder than the the evil eye talisman.
Invited by Şule Altıntaş the founder and curator of Gama Gallery Istanbul, Bianca began to create an installation in Cappadocia.
This artwork is Bianca’s inspired vision of the evil eye which is titled the EYE OF LOVE shifting the story from a curse into a blessing.
The EYE OF LOVE is represented by a heart in the centre of the eye.
The artwork installation is called EYE LOVE YOU and it is an invitation to all people to “look with love” and have compassion for all people and the world.
This artwork can only be viewed from above which represents the value in rising above situations and seeing with altitude. The eyes look toward Mecca, symbolic of looking with our inner hearts.
The artwork is 44 meters in diameter and will reside the the Goreme National Park for Summer 2019. In an open flat valley area easily viewed by passing hot air balloons.
The circular blue canvas holds five eyes of various sizes the largest being 14 meters wide, the others are 10, 9, 8 and 7 meters wide.
Bukare.net Films will create videos of the installation and the celebration weekend for promotion in media, online and in social channe
It is estimated that 500,000 people take a hot air balloon flight each year in Cappadocia, and summer is the high season. Visitors from all over Turkey and the world will be present.
The project will be promoted to the balloon pilots. Online the project will be presented via Instagram, Facebook and YouTube.
Travel bloggers and Instagram influencers will be targeted to promote the project.
