Every Me is an art residency curated by Mustafa Boğa in Adana, Turkey during September every year for two weeks. Most of the artists have never been to Adana before and they come from different backgrounds. 

The residency is a collaboration between local life and visiting artists and examines how experiences that come from culture, education, lifestyles, and religion can be explored and interpreted through visual and expressive language.

For this residency I used materials made locally, home made bleach and scraps of patterned fabric. I have been interested in the familiar materials that are common to daily life but applying them in unfamiliar ways. This work is an attempt to engage with the craft and trade-based culture embedded in the everyday life of Adana.
