The Fork

Ready-made object bent fork, on common living-room color in Turkey, and IKEA frame, 23x23 cm, Istanbul, 2012

The Fork originally belonged to the artist’s family and was used for almost 60 years. This bent fork, symbolizes a kind of stasis in the financial level of the artist’s family as well as of any other. The idea to continue using a fork after it loses form and function provides another possibility: insisting to use things even after the end of their true lifetime, against overconsumption.
