CYBELE AND HER CHILDREN -1

CYBELE AND HER CHILDREN
The mother goddess cult is a part of many cultures of the humanity, and it generally represents plentitude and fertility.
That small “sitting woman” statute from Çatalhöyük has always impressed me very much. And some of my works carry the traces of Cybele and some other mysterious women statuettes of Anatolia.
Due to the wars of our modern times, hundreds of thousands of people are escaping from where they live… And therefore there are millions of refugees in my country and in Europe. This means to say that to be a refugee sometime in our future is a probability for all of us… Thus, we are children of Cybele.
In my “Cybele and Her Children” project, I wrapped my models by aluminum folio. The brightness of aluminum, and metallic atmosphere of the material give them an impression as if they have come from another earth. And what’s more they are almost providing Cybele with sacredness and godhood.
