More about the exhibiition
  I knew a man who filled his cavities with tar (1985)

I knew a man who played grown up games with children (1985-87)

I knew a woman who lifted her face with scotch tape (1989)

I knew a woman who washed her mouth with soap (1990)

I knew a child for only eighty-six days (1993)

I know a woman who closes her eyes in the washroom horrified to see the contrast of her wet hair with the tiles (1997)



And today I am horrified to see my hanging wet hair in contrast with the white washroom tiles

And hope enhances the contrast…

Then

The ants rebel against the white contrast of my eyes

Pupils rise up

The woman howled in a different tongue

And I lived in a common language

The ants rebelled against the contrast of the white washroom tiles and my black hair

Maternal instinct fails to rise up to my sufferings

The fears smash the eggs

Ants drown in the infection of my breasts

The uprising is silenced

The pupils slowly abase

Time does not pass

It repeats evermore



Past, present and future

They mix

And I am confused



My mother has been giving birth to me for the past thirty-five years

My father turns into a tomato plant

Suffering never cause my death

It drags me to childbearing



At the climax of suffering and birth

I murmur in my maternal language…

Wake up Qaraçuxa*



Wake up Qaraçuxa

I have written all the names on stone

From the east to the west

There is no hope in our hearts

It weighs on our eyelids

Soon it will drop down with our first tear



And in the common language I live the tears…


Wake up Qaraçuxa(2018)


*In Azerbaijan mythology and folklore, everyone has a guardian angel, called Qaraçuxa, who keeps evil away. If Qaraçuxa is awake the person is safe from ill and harm but if asleep the person will suffer all misfortune.
