A throw of the dice acts as a metaphor for individual existence, where the patterns of everyday life are driven by chance and our actions are a choice. The throw affirms a sense of urgency, as well as an awareness of how our lives and history are in a perpetual state of repetition, yet with paradoxical variations.
Through its cyclical composition, and meditative, rhythmic temperament, Didem Pekün’s exhibition Of Dice and Men speaks to the repetitive flow of history. Here history appears as a play, the same play performed anew across generations but with different directors, actors, and sets. The play is performed in different languages, with different audiences, each experiencing the script in new ways.
