Children Stolen from Reality
The basis of work is imaging and recording the objects I made. The process connects sculpture, installation, directing and photography, imagination of the audience in same manner as imagination of the creator. The process begins by cutting figures from photos in order to put them in another space to achieve the desired impression. The sole creating of small installations in a certain surrounding is more important than the act of recording. The installation is photoed in order to become a photography. By offering a meeting with until then unnoticed shapes and meanings, my photographies renew our way of viewing in a way that they liberate from conventional. They are constructors of new imaginary world. A human being is closest to oneself when he/she reach the seriousness of a child in a middle of a play. Because photography is lined with play generally, because we are played upon in front of it, this is the reason why it plays with us successfully, and it can enter the world of art. Photography is a part of artificially created and not of reality. What counts for play counts considerably for a piece of art as well. It is generated in a real world, but it creates an imaginary world by using ‘real props’ to shape the world of unreal.
