‘İki Gündür Karşı Apartmandaki Kadının İntihar Etmesini Bekliyorum. Belki de Etmez. Ne Düşündüğünü Bilmiyorum O'nun.’
Sevim Burak, Karşı Pencere
The title of the photo series “For the past two days, I've been waiting for the lady across the road to commit suicide. Maybe she won't. I don't know what she’s thinking.” is from the first sentences of a short story called “The Window” by Sevim Burak - one of the most prolific female writers of 20th century Turkish literature.
The small figurine featured in each photo gets its inspiration from Auguste Rodin’s famous sculpture “The Thinker”, only this time transformed into female form. The series as a whole is an account of the woman thinker who contemplates at her home in various compositions that are pre-determined first by society and then by the artist herself.
