Catalogue Note

"In his work, Sakir Gokcebag deconstructs the various dimensions of our everyday life to reveal its complexity and the multiple facets of reality this yields... Today, his work is primarily determined by ready-made style object-based and spatial installations, in which he removes everyday objects from their customary contexts, charging them with new, often absurd levels of meaning through serial reproduction, deformation, and deconstruction...The artist is a master of references. He borrows the ready-made from Duchamp, the critical irony from Dadaism, the absurd psychological dimension of our world of objects from Surrealism, the emphasis on geometry from Bauhaus aesthetics, and from Minimalism the sequence and serial production."
