The purpose of this thesis is to suggest a reading of my works, which I produced in two years, around the concepts of meaning, language and memory. In this study, the role of boundary is examined in terms of language, body and their interrelation on the basis of meaning. While articulating the problematics of these conceptions, I considered the borderline between the self and the Other as my focal point. Related with this statement, I am concerned on the issues of re-presentation as a trace of absence and impossibility to recall through writing and speaking. In the exhibition, IFEELIAMEATINGMEMORIES, the projects I produced assume a critique of body of knowledge in relation to physical body of oneself. By implication of the terms, ephemerality and abject, they possibly argue the state of being in between, neither being outside nor being inside. Chapter 1 examines the theoretical substructure that I evaluate my art practice; Chapter 2, the artists with similar affinities who inspired me; Chapter 3, analyses my works in terms of the theoretical and artistic framework as set out in Chapter 1 and Chapter 2.
