Do what we learn from our gut feeling and the burden on our shoulders determine where we look, how we look at it and how we see? We reflect on the concepts of reality, part of a whole, the whole itself and existence while interpreting these gut feelings and the burden using a being that we see around us all the time and often do not realize we step on, such as a rock/stone. In the workshop, we will use soap, which has become an everyday staple. We reflect on the physical properties of this material and compare it with the properties of stone. We give soap a new look, a new reality by giving it form, creating texture from it and painting it.

Materials
Classic white skin soap (several pieces)
Utility knife
Acrylic paint or watercolor
Hard materials that can be used to create texture (toothpicks, steel wool, fork, a textured stick, etc.)
A container full of water
A piece of cloth

Fluid Identities  Creating an Identity / Hybrid Identities

Fluid Identities Creating an Identity / Hybrid Identities

A firm believer in the idea that a collection needs to be upheld at least by four generations and comparing this continuity to a relay race, Nahit Kabakcı began creating the Huma Kabakcı Collection from the 1980s onwards. Today, the collection can be considered one of the most important and outstanding examples among the rare, consciously created, and long-lasting ones of its kind in Turkey.

Shaping Forms  The Migrant Body / Shaping Ideologies

Shaping Forms The Migrant Body / Shaping Ideologies

Constituting the entirety of all the perceived aspects of an object creating their own order, form not only contains visual elements and characteristics, but can also help elucidate concepts. 

Memory Building Memories / Memory Room / Memento Mori

Memory Building Memories / Memory Room / Memento Mori

Each memory tells an intimate story; each collection presents us with the reality of containing an intimate story as well. The collection is akin to a whole in which many memories and stories of the artist, the viewer, and the collector are brought together. At the heart of a collection is memory, nurtured from the past and projecting into the future.
