A FALL // ISTANBUL
Düşüş // Istanbul
”a Fall” responds to the story of a fallen monument in Madrid, where I spent 1,5 monts as an artist in residence at MataderoMadrid. 8 monts later, the adventure became a solo exhibition when I digitally stole the missing piece of the fallen monument and recreated it on a 1:1 scale in Istanbul.
The story was performed regularly during the exhibition and distributed as a publication, with texts by Elif Batuman and Nazlı Gürlek, in addition to my account.
Please click to download the PDF versions of the publication, a Fall and its insert, Elif Batuman’s Wing Story.
