About Görenek’s art
While today living in cities being condition of the century and while it is being predicted cities evolving to citystates, what is the condition of stating one’s contrast in this monotypical metropolis life? Creation of one’s own original identity and living it is not being considered as a value in the metropolitan life, which swallows “human” and vomits “individual”, is turning into “a fighting for boundaries, rather than a life within boundaries” as described by Beatriz Colomina.
Human, getting hopeless and isolated, being more desperateon domesticating the deep feeling of solitarity, does what has to be done as imposed: buys. Todays consumption-culture human, living with the dream of leaving the city, while struggling in monotypical houses with their monotypical global identities.

Gülderen Görenek teaches art in Çanakkale Onsekiz Mart Universtiy currently as of 2017.
