I really wonder how Tim Burton adapted one of my all-time favorite books by Lewis Caroll (whose actual name is Charles Lutwidge Dodgson) I think he merged both “Alice in Wonderland” and “Through the Looking Glass” and gave a more larger role to the Mad Hatter character, by representing Alice as 10 years after her first visit and adapting the story to a much more different version of Wonderland as we know it. Disney‘s old cartoon version of Alice in Wonderland is of a level that I still consider magnificent, but I think the upcoming movie, again by Disney will be more amazing than ever. The movie will also be available in some theatres in 3D, so I am very excited about it.
The movie will be released on the 3rd of March, 2010, so there is still six months.
Today, I went to Yaşam Şaşmazer‘s exhibition “Strangely Familiar” at Çağla Cabaoğlu Art Gallery with my friend Yankı, who apparently has previously posted about this on her blog. I really did adore the sculptures although I think they were a bit damaged (probably because they were in a fair before this exhibition). The exhibition had its opening reception today so it’s really fresh and will continue until the 15th of October.
Here are some photos I took of two of his wooden sculptures, a bronze relief and another sculpture made from bronze which I particularly liked. Enjoy!
