Bataklıkta Fert Değil / Not a Unit in the Marsh

Bahar 13. Sharjah Bienali İstanbul Ayağı dahilinde Abud Efendi Konağı’nda sergilendi. 2017.

Bataklıkta Fert Değil belirli bir bölgede kontrollü bir şekilde oluşturulan sazlıktır.

Bataklığı bataklık yapan en nihayetinde zemin yapısı olsa da bataklığa düşen, ferdi özelliklerini kaybedip bataklık bütününün bir parçası olur. Suda yüzen balığın da tepesinde uçan kuşun da adı turnadır. Sazın kökleri yılana, yılan köklere benzer. Bataklıkta biten saz da ancak kesilince tek başına bir ferttir.

Not a Unit in the Marsh is a field of reeds created in a determined area in a controlled manner.

Although what makes a marsh is ultimately the soil structure, one who falls in it, loses its individual characteristics and becomes a part of the entirety of the marsh. Both the fish swimming in the water and the bird flying above are called by the same name. The roots of the reed look like snakes, the snakes look like the roots. Once the reed that grows in a marsh is cut, only then it could be an individual by itself.

The essay related to the research prior to the production of this work is here.
