Installation view

2005-2010


The work is based on a casual talk with a 94-year-old woman, who had migrated from Bulgaria to Turkey when she was young. Her personal collection of photographs implies disparate hints of her life, while she is sharing her fragmented personal memories. NIGÂR refrains from any immersive storytelling as Muratoğlu perceptibly had no intention to build any intimacy with the subject. Yet, the sincere memories build fascinating links to the unofficial and untold history of the 20th century.
