Only a Corner

Only A Corner is a plaster site-specific intervention, softening the corners where two walls meet to create a concave, softer corner. Only A Corner is an interpretation of the notions of healing, treating, and transforming a space. With the goal of making visible the negotiations between the architecture of a space and production, Only A Corner is an attempt to mark and embody the colossal effort of being present. Gifted to the artist-run-initiative Poşe for as long as they choose to keep it, I hope this work reminds people that artworks mark and permanently alter spaces. In thinking about this artist-initiative in Istanbul and their sacrifices to keep the space open, Only A Corner is a caressing of the space, taking dialogues and situations presented to artist by artists as a departure point.
