  • Genre painting is defined in the genre of art history literature as the productions made with paint on canvas that present the daily life shaped in the home space to the viewer. I take my dynamics from standing against the traditionalism in which genre painting associates assigned female figures with a specific space or a specific job description. I question the visual transformation of the feminine objects in the house sites in Turkey as a visual theme for the idiom “Latch string is always out” or “You have a place on my head,” which is an attitude of tolerance in Turkish tradition with linguistic integration. I try to associate my personal impressions with objects I randomly find in Istanbul during my photography production. In terms of production attitude, I reproach the planned creation of the traditional notion with the flow, present the idea of ​​having defined sexual identities in the flow metaphorically, and aim to invite people to think about objects.
