Peter Root
Plot

There is a lot you can do with one knife and a bicycle repair kit when you are artist Peter Root. Plot is a clear example of the way the organic can be used as an expressive means to unveil the crumbling decay of a city and its architectural construction.

The details are meticulously crafted and include TV aerials, hundreds of windows on various tower blocks, as well as the crescent moon of Islam on the mosques that tell a different story of Istanbul, one that is fragile, delicate, and dense in its expression. The spuds were brought from various shops around the city of Istanbul.

Plot was part of the Spaceless Place exhibition, Studio 9 Istanbul, March 8 – April 12, 2012.
