Playing with our perception of ‘what is real’ and ‘what is fake’, my works stand on a zone in which ‘the real’ and ‘the fake’ overlap and create an unclarity in the mind of viewers. Since 2001, I have been working on this perception through altering movie characters and plots to create fake realities. The medium in the body of work changes according to the topics, or to the concepts of the works. Sometimes, just like in the old times, I use painting instead of photography and paint some documents and objects, letters, envelopes, even photographs, notes, magazine pages to epitomize ‘the representation’ of the reality; and sometimes I manipulate the photographs and question the acceptance of photography as being ‘the only’ representation of ‘reality’; and sometimes to confound the perception of our space and time, I erase the spatial features in familiar moving images and create new spaces.
