Antonio Cosentino
In Antonio Cosentino’s works, one finds a wealth of images distilled from everyday life, the depths of personal, memory, and the visual culture of the artist’s city. He founded the art initiative Hafriyat with Hakan Gürsoytrak and Mustafa Pancar in 1996 in Istanbul.

The Istanbul based artist Antonio Cosentino shows at the Mahalla Festival his object/installation Portable.

What do we take, when we leave a place? Clothing, toilet-items, memories, expectations? The artist manufactured a light-case of objects including all the things important to him. As a portable dream-box. He is transporting the art-work like a suitcase as a regular luggage to Malta and back.
