Çekçek 

2016,
installation,
remanufactured handcart and Kurdish banner

Çekçek is the name of the handcart which is using by local people in Kurdish cities in Turkey, for carry and sell things. Because of its use through the history, it has almost turned into a cultural  object. Although, after the last curfew declaration (2015) in Kurdish cities, it lost its own meaning. People started to carry dead bodies killed by the state. The banner* is made by the same people, against the state repression and hanged in the streets which were under the curfew and attacks.  My intervention  consist in the re-actenement of one 'culture's signs which the actual power try to exterminate but which find their own  way to exist in other contextualisation-s.
