- Marble Chair
"To sculpt means to take away, not to add, because the sculpture already exists inside of the marble. The only thing the sculptor has to do is liberate the figure imprisoned in the marble." (Michelangelo)
Marble as a material of objects who's shape is not pre-defined by a mould or design, but by the decision of the sculptor to call it finished. An existing marble chair, found in Cukurcuma in Istanbul, on which the carving is continued to give the chair a new life, undressed from its ornament.
Commissioned by Haaz Gallery Istanbul for the Block exhibition, of which the brief was to work with turkish marble.
