Ömür Tokgöz: Selected works, 2015-2018
Primitive and technologic series
Porcelain is a material that needs technology at every stage. And historically, it represents the aristocracy. I thought of primitive forms instead of perfect repeating forms of technology.

I’ve always been interested in cities. I think cities are a space of human-made objects. That’s why they reflect a photo of the lives of people living in the city. Every city has a soul with its visible and invisible aspects

Fragile Series – Dark Room 1
This space was an experience of the visual and auditory perception of fragility. Extremely fragile objects were displayed on a 1×1 square meter light box. The light in the space varied from white to yellow with the time. Different appearances were created on the objects with the changing colours of the light. At the same time, the sound of breaking porcelain accompanied in different forms to the display.
