The exhibition title, EORUM SANAI (Ice Man), is directly in reference to Novelist Murakami Haruki‟s short story “Ice Man.” In this story, the protagonist is simply called “ice man” from beginning to end, without any mention of his actual name or any hint at personal backgrounds. He is a man without a history about how he lived in the past, what he will be doing in the future, or what he should be doing; the only thing the readers know is the fact that he is there at the present moment in which he exists.
