SEPARATELYTOGETHER letters, numbers, punctuation and other signs, 2018
public space installation
ink-jet print on vinyl
The work exhibited as the second edition of the Yanköşe public art project on Meclis-i Mebusan Street, Kabataş, Istanbul presents the most recent version of the text of the Constitution of the Republic of Turkey, in a large format pattern. All of the elements that make up the Constitution desert the sentences and paragraphs they belong to, in order to meet other elements similar to them, and the lines they form transform into straight lines that intersect but extend out along different axes to compose an abstract, chaotic view. In this way, these elements, which contain the potentiality of the text of the constitution, are emancipated in a sense, and open a door for sentences that have not yet been formed. The work focuses on the Constitution, and encourages thought on the possibility of individuals from a certain land to live together, not despite their differences, but with their differences.
