Selcuk Artut / Habituation

Artist Book

Publisher: Zilberman Gallery 2019

Surrounded by the demise of tranquillity, the effort to pronounce a whispered melody radiates dimly into my void. All that I am able to hear resolves into a high-pitched melody ringing in my mismatched ears. But there is still something out there trying to accompany the never-ending asynchronous rhythm. Unaware of the simplicity of the recursive incident, my perception floats gently into the thin air as a faint shadow reflected
on a sidewalk. Out of the blue, some bold shadow starts to crumble into pieces of grains proliferating with designated appearances. Despite all the irregularities observed, familiarity is still dissident. One after the other, all of the minuscule pieces start forming the anatomy of a sudden explosion with vicinal lines branching off in between several distinctive locations.
