A Fish’s Death, 2010

In autumn 2010, I worked with my art collective Palatti for several weeks in Istanbul, Turkey. We were preparing a site-specific project for Art Pie’s first Edition in Istanbul. The exhibition took place within the Tüyap art fair : in total 18 Dutch art initiatives were invited who each had a space within the 11.000 m2  hall. In Istanbul, Palatti worked in the production space of Caravansarai’s artist residency. Situated in Karaköy, a neighborhood filled with small shops and peddlers walking around.

The drawings and paintings in „A Fish’s Death“ are fragments of an imagined crime story set in Istanbul.
