Seni Seviyorum (I love you)


installation in public space: photos mounted on marble

These photos were taken in an abandoned Armenian school in Bahçecik village (Kocaeli, Turkey). Before 1915, Bahçecik (Arm.: Bardizag) population was mostly Armenian. Today, very few traces of them remain in the public space, this crumbling school being the most visible one.

Two photos of the opposing walls of the main hall of the school were mounted on marble slabs and installed on the opposite edges of the village, thus extending the symbolic space of a remembrance.

Seni Seviyorum Seni Seviyorum Seni Seviyorum Seni Seviyorum
