Jakup Ferri has been producing drawings along with his videos for a while, and he has been searching for ways to present them using "traditional" and contemporary methods. At first, it can easily be said that the people, animals and objects in his compositions were taken on with a naive approach. However, when we look at them as a whole and see that the characters of the objects we encounter have changed, the word naive seems inadequate. In Ferri's drawings, wars, grand narratives, imagining of future linked to his personal experience intertwine in a frightening way.
