The Abandoned ⎮2022

Full Hd – Color – Stereo – 06’46” – 2022

How much has the future been shaped by past promises? Promises made to persuade and manage a community often cannot go beyond the representation of a short moment. As a result of the loss of social memory, a future in which the past is not questioned emerges. The promises of the political machinery that produced the process for problem solving form a structure that is forgotten by society, and similar cycles are repeated as a result.

The Abandoned, a work produced specifically for the exhibition, depicts many sorts of plants that are going to dry in various pots, glasses, and metal boxes in an abandoned greenhouse. These plants are watered using small glass droppers in close-up pictures.
