YEARNING-FILLED ROOMS – THE EXHIBITION CONCEPT
A gigantic city plan of Istanbul is laid on the floor of the flat hosting the exhibiton. The part where the Golden Horn, the Bosphorus and the Sea of Marmara are located are 8 cm higher above the floor; thousands of glass marbles representing the sea flow glitteringly through the canal. The canal both represents water and reminds us of our memories of playing marbles as children. You may walk on the marbles if you wish. Each room in the flat has a theme, a story. You can see some of the paintings I’ve completed within the last 20 years in Istanbul and in Kayseri on the walls, most of which have been sprayed with colorful paints by means of a pesticide pump sprayer. The paintings have been distributed on the walls with reference to their colours, motives as well as the districts in the city plan on the floor.
