Through 13 mostly large 4D lenticular works, Bedri Baykam reinterprets the work of the Norwegian artist. After an intensive and long research into the life and the works of Munch, several travels to Oslo and to Aasgaardstrand, Baykam invites the public to dive into the depth of Munch's existential pangs. Being impregnated with his intimacy, his solitude and his isolation, Baykam empathically projects himself in specific eras of Munch's life, having the desire to express in his own way all the strong feelings and internal combat Munch had towards life.

His exhibition Homage to Edvard Munch was initially shown at the Pinacothèque de Paris Museum, whose director, Marc Restellini, offered the artist a «Carte Blanche»; thanks to this opportunity, Baykam was able to penetrate freely into the world of Edvard Munch.

The personal versions of Baykam's works on the basis of Munch's paintings, such as La Madonna, The Kiss, Puberty, The Mermaid, The Dance of Life and the Sphinx, The Sick Child and of course The Scream transcribe the importance and the influence of Munch's lifetime in his work: an orchestration between his inspirational sources, his numerous reflections and artistic explorations, his torments and demons. A multidimensional Munch, a synthesis of complexity, sensibility and creativity at a unique level. The references to the works of the Norwegian artist tend to marry with recent and contemporary images and hypnotize us, while transferring us into perceptions beyond time and real space.
