Surrounded by the Uninhabitable (Again)
SALT Galata and Beyoglu, Istanbul
ongoing til 01.10.2012
Surrounded By The Uninhabitable is an ongoing, evolving installation that revisits the study as both the activity of thinking and researching, and the space dedicated to it. In this project different structures, on a scale between furniture and architecture, offer a range of possible ways to use and inhabit the space of the Forum, opening up the space between the street and the exhibitions. They are composed of fragments of other rooms, and loosely refer in form and color to existing and fictional studies. This semi-utilitarian installation addresses the social function of space by combining sculptural object, exhibition and institution entrance.
In its second iteration Surrounded By The Uninhabitable is reconfigured to new functions with a range of public programmes and inhabits the Forum of SALT Beyoglu.
