Bird ‘head’

Sculpture, Bird nest made by objects and tree brunches, r: 44 cm, Istanbul and Italy, 2012

The work is basically deals with the value system that operative in our capitalist societies. In a symbolic manner, it proposes us to think about another possibilities than money directed, consumerist culture through use of nature as a tool for it. Is it possible to have empathy with a bird? to learn from a bird? Is it possible to change our extremely logical perspective about value?

We -as humankind- have developed very sophisticated look to the nature. We had a certain value system that uses money to evaluate the value of the things. In this way creates hierarchies of the items around us. We name things not related with the row material but with the name of the brands. Producing a copy of a bird nest is a symbolic gesture which is important part of the work.
