Art and Recycling

Monika Piorkowska

April 11, 2014 – May 7, 2014

Kare Gallery, Abdi İpekçi Caddesi, Ada Apt. No. 22/8 K. 2, Nişantaşı


The Polish artist Monika Piorkowska exhibits her site-specific installation at Kare Gallery, part of the anniversary celebrations commemorating 600 years of diplomatic relations between Turkey and Poland.

The exhibition derives its name from the artist’s own experiences with waste collectors in Istanbul, and Piorkowska establishes an alternative narrative by involving herself in the collection process with her digital photographs/films. Consequently, she also becomes a collector; ‘a collector of memories’. This process of collecting (both artistically and materially) allows the artist to examine the value systems within the art market and society in general.

Prices range between €1,500–€15,000.
