The Thing Released into the Water: Sirin Koçak’s Ceramics

Art returns things it gets from life, back to life inherently. It gives life to the lives of others through various reckoning1. In one respect, art indicates a thing that we have but failed to realize among the endless details of life. It is like being stopped and overhearing, and then being turned around to look at the vision created by someone who is following their own traces. We can see that the melodies, colors, links, searches and challenges in our life are also parts of the life of another person, or other life parts that we do not recognize until they hit our wall and we share them. In the same way we can approach the exhibition of this artist as her bringing her works together and releasing her own life parts into the flowing water, and unknown receivers give other lives to the work with their various reckonings.
