Working in and for the public space is, for me, basically an act of friendship.


‘BARIŞ’ (Peace)

Emperador marble, 180x90x135cm. 17th Alanya International Stone Sculpture Symposium, Turkey, November 2022


‘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. The sites include a.o. Mount Nemrut, Arsameia, Karakuş Tumulus and Kahta Castle. My work was installed on the riverbed of the Cendere Creek at the foot of the late Roman Septimius Severius Bridge, built by Legion XVI Flavia Firma, near the ancient city of Arsameia. It consists of a boulder in which the word ‘SÖYLE’ (Speak) is carved, surrounded by seven boulders in which an ear is carved. It is a place for free speech and listening, two prerequisites for a new civilisation.
