My on going project 'Inleyen Nağmeler' is an exploration of thoughts and questions on displacement and belonging. Started as a reflection of my experiences as an immigrant, over time, the work formed into a visual journey of meditations on what home ‘was’, what it ’has become’ and everything in between, evoked through both the recurring memories of childhood and the body of my lover.
How gorgeous, sun lights the leaves
For a brief moment
I am back home
I am no where but
In my memories
For a brief moment I forget the seasons
I welcome light and the beauty of life
I imagine the summer, heat and sweat
Before that moment slips away and
The wind hugs me with cold arms,
I am at peace.
