Migrant Immigrant

Terracota Cups, 2016

In this work I want to show the connection between the shopkeepers (of
temporary tea shops) and their customers. There is a strong link between
them which one can feel when he observes the day to day life of those
shopkeepers and customers. This temporary interaction might become a
permanent impression in their lives. And I try to frame and preserve
this temporariness in my work by using many old objects (used clay tea
cups) which I have collected from those shops. Some of these cups have
portraits of those customers who used them; some have signatures and
personal information on them by those customers and that shows the
connection between the shops, the shopkeepers and their customers.
