Sky of Artifice

Collaboration with Merve Ünsal, Installation, Curly Mat, led fluorescent light, 2019

Produced for an art fair in Istanbul, this floor installation is made up of two elements. The plastic rugs, very often used outdoors to prevent slipping, were purchased from an underground pass, which flooded during the heavy rains a few weeks past. There were marks of the water on the rugs, which we mimicked and repeated using a knife. We mirrored the artificial lighting of the fair environment to draw attention to trigger a flickering of the gaze up and down.
