The artist selected several historical images, replicated on top of news print papers, folded and hid the images in 100 different places. After re-collecting the images in a while, the artist straightened the folded images and printed numbers in relation to the hidden places using stencil technique. As soon as personal memories are identified and appears through the numeric system which is humanity’s universal language, it resolves to normal. The lined-up numbers (signifier) transform into the viewer’s(signified) individual memories. The exhibition handles 20 different works by the artist including the artist’s newest two-dimensional works , and short animation film . Since the artist spent half of his life time abroad, after moving back to his home country, everything has changed except of silhouettes of unclear memories. The animation shows the artist’s attempt to narrow the gap between unclear memories of the past and present through linking date and time. Therefore, the exhibition becomes a mediator creating personal speculation for the viewer’s and agitating deep memories from the past. Artist Biography.
