OpenWork is about all this rigidity we call the world. Definitions; with corners and walls to be crushed. All the teachings and perceptions that squeeze human being into a concrete mentality only. All the boundaries that make the ‘one’ the ‘other’. To all forms and monuments that reduce existence to the material alone, that sanctify this compression and monumentalise it. A gentle question mark to all this theatre and a subtle invitation to lightness, wind, centre.
OpenWork is a performative space which is a theatrical exhibit of transitions. It is shaped around the metaphors of material, liminality and it is based on playing around with the meanings of these concepts, which have been the representations of our relationship with the world is a call for all concepts and their transformation. It is the initiative of a new threshold.
The abstract gates and the plan created by the resonating audible surfaces that work just like an musical instrument turn into a game of 'exchange' with the touch of the visitor. While the installation embodies a monumental spatial arrangement and size intentionally, this hierarchical immunity is accompanied by tonality and flexibility when the visitors come into contact with the space. At this point, it is as if those big stones are moved, the meanings are reversed, and the decisiveness in which the human is in the center becomes essential. This game is also a gentle/soft protest and a gentle question mark to the new world that is established or created in front of us.
