Stolen

2015,
installation, stolen photos and letters


Those letters and photos came from  landlord who posses many apartments and flats in Ankara-Turkey, renting them to many urban proletarians  like my family was in 2013. Collecting, keeping and accumulating proprieties as a kind of symbolic memories with a symbolic value, but also a real one on the flat renting market, in the moment where they kicked out my family from the apartment I stoled their personal archives from the attic of the building. So the symbolic value of short temporality memories (3 years) passed in their apartment i exchanged with the act of stealing them 3 years of their own archive memories.  The ‘appropriation’ of their own memorie’s traces figures in that sens as my family’s missing  value of continuity in a condition of proletarian discontinuity of displacement insecurity and constant transition.
