CITIES - sculptures and land art
The city of Izmir invited sculptors to make sculptures from scrap metal. The theme was "the mask".
Les Izmirables - 2013 - assemblage of objets trouvés - steel-scrap metal sculpture - Izmir TR
The bumper of the FATİH truck was deformed to a degree that the rectangular openings in it became plastic and the three millimeter thick steel was transformed into an organic shape. The profiles, which had enclosed the headlights, were transformed by the accident into arm-like extensions. The fenders of the same vehicle were to become the forehead.
