Doruk Kumkumoglu – Gates


Doruk Kumkumoglu – Gates

with Simone Niquille, François Zajega

Digging a hole and excavating the land can be seen as the most primitive and elementary human activity. However, it is also something to which all human activity can be reduced to. This project mainly investigates our relationship with the land by depicting a strange reality in which a two-dimensional ground plan opens up to reveal tunnels of different shapes and sizes. The work is meant to create a sort of religious journey, enabling the viewer to contemplate life, cyclical reality and perpetual motion through unending paths and tunnels.
