What Sakir Gökçebag‘s installations lack in expenses (the artist uses the likes of rolls of toilet paper, hangers, and clocks), they more than make up for in out-of-this-world concept and imagination. The Turkey-born, Hamburg-based artist brings together strengths from various fields, ranging from photography to fine art.
But “from the very beginning, the organization of three-dimensional objects in a given space played a decisive role in his work, which originally was focused upon graphic arts and painting,” says Dr. Marcus Graf in a recent article on Sakir’s work. “Today, his work is primarily determined by ready-made style object-based and spatial installations, in which he removes everyday objects from their customary contexts, charging them with new, often absurd levels of meaning through serial reproduction, deformation, and deconstruction.”
