In the last photo exhibition of [IN]VISIBLE MEANING Photography Project, Forouzesh displayed the artworks in a warehouse of an old building in Budapest. The warehouse, which was not designed to serve people as a social space, benefits the exhibition by highlighting the idea of the Comfort Zone.
The audience could view the Comfort Zone in an abandoned part of the building that had not been used for decades. This space, which is not a comfortable space for a photo exhibition, actually puts the audience in a situation directly under the pressure of the space.
The short ceiling, damp walls, broken wooden floors, and dust on the walls, along with photos that show the issue of living in urban spaces created a different experience for visitors.
“The Comfort Zone exhibition space created for me an inescapable feeling of being in a space that we constantly experience in big cities.
I enjoy seeing the photos, but at the same time, the pressure that the dark space and the low ceiling of the building put on me seem like a metaphor for our lives in big cities. The pleasure of living in big cities and using its resources and facilities encourages us to live in the cities, but at the same time, the city unconsciously is a painful and difficult space to live.”
Laura, the exhibition’s visitor, says.
