I consider this performative installation as a site of performance and it is Site-specifically configured for this space. This project is a re-interpretation of my three previous works in a single body. They are separately called “Anomalistic”, “Command” and “Conserve 1” but in this project they are working together with a single title and re-creating a new organism and indicating their essential roots- memory and language. “There is no history now” becomes an operating-space which allows the participation of visitors as well as the artist.
