Felekşan Onar's artistic response to the plight of Syrian refugees in Istanbul, "Perched" refers to the way these refugees have landed in a chaotic city but are unable to fly or move - they are grounded, with nowhere to go. The Islamic Middle East Gallery provides temporary shelter to this flock of wingless birds.
