SÖYLE – SPEAK. Kommagene Biennial, August 20-October 20, 2022. Kahta, Turkey. In the Kommagene Biennial, curated by Nihat Özdal, 53 artists from 23 countries made installations to create an imaginary new civilization at the fabulous archaeological sites of the Kahta district in southeastern Anatolia. My work was installed on the riverbed of the Cendere Creek at the foot of the late Roman Septimius Severius Bridge. It consists of a boulder in which the word ‘SÖYLE’ (Speak) is carved, surrounded by seven boulders with a carved ear. It is a place for free speech and listening, two prerequisites for a new civilization.
