The Nature
of Baksı

Baksı is a part of the geography that it is situated in, with its architectural design, structure and social dimension. One of the most important features of Baksı that makes it an authentic museum, is the open structure for dialogues and interactions established with its geography. Accordingly, the works in the collection of course, besides being an object only in the Main Building or Warehouse-Museum, sail into other geographical dialogue with people and nature. Every work is located or viewed in any way in the museum, in the sense that it takes on other meanings in nature. Like Kemal Tufan's "Submarine", Tuğrul Selçuk's "Tree of Life", Aloş's "Snake" or Koray Ariş's "Two Heads". The works that relate to nature and experience it, are part of the unique and contemporary sense of museum that is based on Baksı' understanding of 'open structure' and which is identical to art life.

The Thorn
On My Foot

May-November 2017
First my father's brother left, then others, and then my father followed the road of leaving. He told me that he spent many days traveling with horses; I learned from him the stories of Çetinkaya - Erzincan railway passengers. And since this journey has begun, this day never ends. That's why I had my memories of leaving the most, in my seventy-one years of life. Perhaps for this reason; I chose a childhood memory, the story of a thorn that sinks on my feet, itches, then leaves me as a title for my exhibit.
