Sarah Morris’ paintings, known for striking color choices, involve visual architecture while defining routes of specific forms of vision. Since the late 1990’s, she has created a number of abstract paintings and films, with which she probed “urban, social, and bureaucratic typologies” and created a new language of space and politics. Strange Magic (2014), the latest film by Morris, shot for the Foundation Louis Vuitton, was shown in Dirimart Dolapdere for the first time in Turkey.
