> DESCRIPTION


The Istanbul and Berlin based artist Ayşe Erkmen has
arranged a further location-specific installation for
the large area beneath K21’s glass cupola. She focused
on the room’s shell by weaving a textile structure into
the roof’s steel construction.

Large coloured panels of material trace the building’s
basic lines – rather like an architectural survey.
Erkmen’s choice of a course between architectural
integration and an autonomous artistic gesture both
literally and figuratively places this work in an
intermediate zone. The textile structure does not only
subtly change the light and the room’s colours, it also
puts the dominance of technology into perspective thus
creating a new “room climate”.

Apart from a barely four inch high sculpture portraying
the artist herself and a ball of fabric into which her
name has been woven, the remaining space beneath the
cupola has been left empty.
