About The Artwork

Fire Walk with Him 130 x 94 cm oil on canvas 2017, Görkem Dikel In this piece inspired by a poem we hear in David Lynch’s “Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me” TV series, we observe a room in state of demolishment, lying in somewhere in the space. There is also a double bed and two defensive pistols above it: A Desert Eagle (.44 Magnum) and a 1911 (TRP .45ACP). Those two pistols trying to defend eachother from the cosmic fracture or laceration of the reality. Which came first? The weapon or the danger? In that scene in which the danger – trust – fear go round in cycles, in the uncanny environment of patriarchal system should we protect ourselves with the weapons of patriarchy? Don’t we maintain the state of danger the moment we do this? Are those weapons rising on the masculine power the precursors of self destruction? (*) Through the darkness of futures past The magician longs to see One chants out between two worlds Fire walk with me
