One Work, 2014

Screen shot 2015-03-13 at 7.30.12 PM

The work plays on the word for collaboration in Turkish. Literally broken apart into two parts, ʻisbirligiʼ can be read as ʻis birligiʼ, which means the oneness or unity of work. Putting the ʻonenessʼ into parantheses, the word ʻisʼ, meaning ʻworkʼ is left outside, referring to the art work itself. The first edition of this work was initially produced for Özge Ersoy, a frequent collaborator. The work is an endless edition, produced upon demand, just like Every Artist Should Have a Neon Work (2013).
