Why Are Elephants Angry? The text in the book published for the exhibition was written by Evrim Altuğ.

John Berger's "Why Do We Care for Animals?" As stated in the text, the existence of public zoos, which became widespread in the 19th century, was more than just a spectacular experience, it was a symbol that confirmed the power of the government while supporting the colonial tradition with the display of exotic animals captured and brought from distant and foreign countries. In this exhibition, named after elephants known for their strong memories, Why Are Elephants Angry? Through the question, the interaction of nature and humans with each other, power dynamics and the consequences of man's ambition to dominate his environment, playing with these dynamics, are examined closely.

In the beginning, as in the murals in the Lascaux cave, when human beings and animals were whole in each other's existence, man's attempt to escape from this unity to gain superiority over nature through violence resonates with an internalized courage in which the brute force used by man against nature also encourages him to use violence against other people. Çavuldur, who processes the meanings of violence taken from different contexts with the codes of today's world, unleashes a story that moves from the borders of the outside world to its own core. While creating this story, every information, memory and all the possibilities of time that contain the unlimited memory of the universe; Sometimes it is preserved in a woman's hair, sometimes in the veined surface of a leaf or in the molecules of a lava stone, never to be lost.
