assorted artworks {since 2010 'till present}


is a part of a new open-ended piece, a sort of reflection-in-process on the political, economical, social and human crises, both on the local and global level, and how these crises affect us personally. ”Where, where, where do you think you run to…” is a growing collection of objects, collages, graphics and textiles. Here are some large textiles made from (over)-used bed sheets, towels and tablecloths, combined with texts and painting in  “punk-burlesque” manner. These fabrics have witnessed people’s desires, doubts, dreams, and dramas; the texts drew on these stained, damaged, ‘well lived in’ material are ambiguous instructions, welcoming and restrictive, offering and ordering, playing on the double meaning of “being a host” and/or “being hostile”. As if these instructions were made for a stranger that is treated as a guest, but could also potentially turn into an enemy.
