Zeren Göktan, ‘We Are Inseperable’, 2013, Cda-Projects

Zeren Göktan builds an online memorial to deceased women due to domestic violence, which can be accessed through QR codes imbedded in beaded nets fabricated by male prisoners. Through this ‘gateway’ the viewer is invited to scan the code that leads to the memorial website, where a digital counter indicates the number of women deceased in Turkey due to violence. Imagery used by the prisoners is subverted by the artist and woven into the shrouds to remind the viewer of the imminent violence most women face in Turkey.
