Coordinates

2014, series of 15 drawings on paper, each 40 x 35 cm


The drawings from the series “Coordinates” adopt the form of simplified world maps. Although at first glance it is not obvious which places are the focus of these maps, the exact coordinates make it clear that the crosshairs mark very specific points.






Searching for the coordinates in the internet, they indicate places that have a very particular significance for the history of massacre and colonization of Kurdistan, like Uludere (Southeast Turkey), Halabdscha (North Irak), Paris (France) or Rojava (Syria).
