Şakir Gökçebağ part deciphers. Part conceals the mundane images of industrial production. In a circulation that treads from the local to the universal. The objects Gökçebağ selects for his artistic production. Are beyond being objects of use and ready-made. And instead are artistic materiel such paint. Marble. Stone. Paper and canvas. These objects assume a new form by departing their true meanings. But without banishing their first meanings. Clothespin. Tray. Nails. Pokers and sieves. While becoming “something” new. They signify an abstract or a surreal view on the one hand. While on the other hand they adopt a new way. Of seeing following the intervention of the artist.
This dual existence constitutes the core of Gökçebağ’s production. As the artist plucks objects. Out of their daily context. He adds as well as subtly subtracts from them. Creating alternative planes of meaning and the objects in this dual existence. Having lost a lot as they transform their identities. Are reborn in the playground Gökçebağ creates with their recognition being replaced by a familiarity.
