My recent work explores the ancient mythology of this land. However
I create a unity with contemporary media. The most important concept for
me is to emphasize the ‘remix-like’ formation. A re-mixed form in the same
way as one might remix music; a view of this life style of ours. Keeping
myself away from nationalistic values, from the past to the present, the
land that shelters this process is always more important for me... I have
an idea which I carry through today that my parent language expressed in
ancient times. I preserve a merciless power in my chromosomes and I nurture
it in a way. This is the urgency of my creative process.
Gün, lives and works in Germany.
