"COUNTER" Exhibition, 2013

‘Counter’
Counter is about women who die from acts of violence in Turkey. This is a two-tier work comprising an online memorial to the deceased and a series of shroud covers inspired by ideas of the afterlife in ancient Egyptian mythology fabricated by male inmates using beads. Two seemingly standalone pieces are connected through QR codes embedded in the beaded nets. Through this ‘gateway’ the viewer is invited to scan the code to go to the website of the memorial where a digital counter indicates the number of women deceased in Turkey due to violence. This counter is updated by an NGO and the artist after each death. The shrouds, on the other hand, present patterns, pictures and ironic lines from the popular love songs. Imagery used to tell love stories by the inmates is subverted by the artist and woven into these shrouds to remind the viewer of the imminent violence most women face in Turkey.
