“How often do you put on a brave face? How often do you face the truth? I am a self-portrait of sober fragility. Born from the rugged mechanics of an old typewriter and dusty carbon paper. My creator, Goekhan Erdogan, is a German Artist, he repeatedly punched his name, over and over on my delicate dark surface. Fingers. Fumbling. With each letter, a numbed silent-scream of truth is released. A desire for courage, yearning to break the rules. Disconnected from reality and forever lost in memories.
I am a creation by Goekhan Erdogan and I come from the Schreibmaschinenzeichnung (Typewriter Drawing) series.”
