Can we measure our distance from our feelings, thoughts, and ourselves? How far are we from ourselves? With the contributions of Güneş Terkol, one of the artists from the Crystal Clear exhibition, we create a unique dictionary of distance that can demonstrate the pandemic-induced permeability we experience in our memory and perception of reality and imagination. In a workshop where distance-based fictional work will be created and interpreted and sewn on fabrics, we create motifs based on the words we have coined in this period when we experience a strong sense of distance and we sew colored patches made from pieces of fabric.

Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel

In 1998 Ben Jakober and Yannick Vu collaborated on an obvious remake of Marcel Duchamp’s Roue de Bicyclette, his first “readymade” object. Duchamp combined a bicycle wheel, a fork and a stool to create a machine which served no purpose, subverting accepted norms of art.
