Ogulcan Arslan, son of two migrant parents is mainly interested in discovering and questioning the notions of otherness and borders; Arslan made the images over five years, when his partner was studying in Geneva:
“Lake Geneva itself guided my choice of colour,” he said. From an interview with the author: “when I see a huge armor inside a glass wall (inside the kunsthistorisches Museum in Geneva), I dream of wearing it every time, (…) I felt strong and safe. I was at peace and almost protected by the armour, I decided to give my project this name, a story within a story”.
The images are arranged in diptychs and triptychs, or stratified; Put On My Geneva Armor analyzes his interests through multiple shades of blue and for the first time in a project focuses on his feelings.
