Visual notes: geographies I have not lived in
Erbaş, Didem (2017) Visual notes: geographies I have not lived in. [Thesis]
This text supports the exhibition, “Geographies I Have Not Lived in” and it is not to be considered as a text on its own without the exhibition. “Geographies I Have Not Lived in” is a text based on the artistic production process through the things seen and experienced. The issues and questions that helped me frame the text are: Momentary events, the socio-political conditions of Turkey, the time passed commuting every day to university, observations at these times, things collected—whether they can become materials for art? What kind of a process would this constitute? I intend to look at the impact of this method, observe this process and analyze the studio as a site of accumulation. While examining the works that constitute the exhibition, “Geographies I Have Not Lived in”, I aim to produce a sphere that each reader can relate to through their personal history.
