2012 Ostim, Ankara

*Photo me alone.

The photography series portrays the public sculptures and monuments in Ankara, the capital of Turkey. As a capital city, Ankara is not touristic as much as the western Turkish cities however she is symbol of Turkish republic revolution and Turkish bureaucracy.

In each public work, a passerby is being asked to take a photo of the artist with the work by an analogue point and shoot camera. It is a performative activity to signify the place and the monuments’ relation with the environment. Later these photos which are printed on a post-card are being exhibited.
