Try Valuation

Try Valuation, 2013. Talk-work. View from …with all the changes that loomed far behind the horizon at MARS, Istanbul, May 2013.

A week before the opening of my first solo exhibition in Istanbul, I delivered this talk-work, describing all the works that were going to be exhibited, discussing the process of making the exhibition as well as the doubts that I had about some of the decisions I had made. This talk was an attempt to question what talking about and contextualizing the works mean and whether that act of talking about artworks could replace the works as a work.
