Art-homes // Istanbul 2010 (please see home-made ghosts for further information)

installation with 16 digital prints and frames, 80x100cm

exhibited in Art-homes, ?stanbul, 2010 and in Crossections, 8th Korea-Turkey Exchange Exhibition, Mustafa Kemal Cultural Center, Istanbul, 2011.

Homemade Memories shows frames, which I bought from various toy or gift shops in Istanbul, and printed photographs of mosaic portraits from newspapers. Those photographs, which we encounter several times in our daily routine, are transformed into anonymous heroes of prostitution, harassment and crimes by image processing programs. Once, those photographs were meant to flourish living rooms in order to be remembered in happy memories. My intention is to physically restore those memories into very joyful frames, in spite of its impossibility in real life.
