Horasan's line of argument brings representation to one's innersphere and seems to make concrete the private and unconfessed fantasies of all its viewers. To jump from the edge of representation with the pleasure one gathers from breaking the rules, is like jumping from the edge of the atelier and reaching the secret alchemy of the creation in the inner world ofthe artist and discovers what is unseen that defines what is seen in this way. Through this game of "a painting within a painting" and mirrors, the painting listens to universes that were unheard of before; it takes an immigrant aesthetics and reaches its own centre. This way, in its state of embodying an intermediary embroidery, the artist's painting becomes neither a simple subject nor a simple medium; it is both of them at the same time.

In the end, Sleep of Darkness is a show for the awake spectator who has like the artist not given up the exhausting quest of critically reviewing reality in order to find ways of taking part in its formation. Horasan's collages are reflec- tions of the broken mirror that once was suppose to show us the meaning of our strange existence. The black models of our world are critical dark visions of the social nightmare that we currently face. The works of the exhibition make us stay awake in order to live sweet dreams and forget the bad dreams that al ways hunt us even during the brightest daylight. Good morning sunshine...

It is important to note first that, one of the key concepts that pertain to the works of this artist is to "create awareness". think the artist makes visible the lives and relations between the people/facts/events we see everyday around us, but do not/can not pay any attention to. These "realities" which can hardly be noticed (even though it is important that they are within the visual cascade of our era, are embodied in Horasan's works.
