About Karolin Fişekçi's work: “The first exhibition I attended in 2002 was the Paving Stones Under the Beach, curated by Vasıf Kortun and Halil Altındere at Proje4L. There, 300 of my wishes were displayed on the wall. Some of these wishes were dreams, some were passions, some were naive childish wishes. There were also cliché sentences; There were also absurd requests that strained the imagination. 20 years have passed; these requests have changed; their order of importance and their number decreased. I have fulfilled many of my wishes in my tumultuous life; I couldn't do some of it or I didn't even want it anymore. In this whole process, desires pushed me on different paths, made me suffer, gave me pleasure, taught me. Now these 300 requests have evolved into 3 requests. Succinct. As a narrator who wants to rise above the female identity without forgetting my womanhood, I share these three wishes and a page from my diary as a picture. My paintings were paintings that I started ten years ago but were waiting to be completed with words to be written on those blank pages in the picture. My story has gained such momentum over these two decades and continues to be written.”
