Zeyno Pekünlü’s latest works in her second solo exhibition deciphers the process of information production and distribution through several methods such as montage, rearrangement and decontextualization; parallel to her previous works.Beginning with found footage and texts, the collector attitude of the artist gravitates to thrash cans of lecture theatres, under the desks, enormous and irregular archive of the Internet, and finally the necessary, unnecessary, rotely, universal, personal, instant or permanent information mass that people accumulate over time.
In these works, underlying questions about the essence of genuine information and its reproduction processes stand out as absurd attempts of categorization and archiving regarding the function of constant information flow and the impossibility of knowledge share and appropriation.
