Seldom Seen, Soon Forgotten

Artist: Büyüktaşçıyan Hera
installation | Site-specific installation: capiz shells, wood and metal | 2018

A Study on Endless Archipelagos is an amalgamation of architectural elements from cities the Turkish artist lived and worked in over the years. For her, they represent particles of “restored memories.” Anthropomorphised, the tiles have miniature bronze feet, suggesting a feeling of a burdened history moving in slow motion, floating on a sea of discrete memories, disconnected from time.
