As If It Never ExIsted

Hiç Var Olmamış Gibi
Wood installation, dimentions variable

“As if It Never Existed” is dedicated to the memory of a Paulownia tree which once existed at the gardens of Yıldız Technical University. The tree which must have been among the oldest Paulownia’s in Istanbul was cut down in 2009, and all thraces of it disappeared after a further attempt at removing its stump that had remained on the ground. The installation includes broken pieces of the stump and roots that the artist reclaims, along with some of the information she was able to gather about this particular tree.
