Installation, 4 photograph, carpet and old check stumbs, 2011
Atelier image, 2012

The artist pays regular visits to an old commercial building in Karaköy district. The building has just been evacuated; most of the furniture has already been carried out, just an office chair, an old fashioned, big strongbox and carpet left in one of the rooms. Though the desk is no longer there, its place is still visible as a worn out rectangular patch on the carpet. During her ongoing visits she witnesses the strongbox and the chair carried away by a metal collector and scrap dealer. The artist has the check stubs from inside the strongbox and the carpet carried to her own atelier.
