I can’t believe that it’s almost time for me to leave the Babayan Culture House. Although I had been to Cappadocia before, for three days last June, you don’t really get to see or appreciate the place at all unless you’ve been here for as long as I have and have hiked around the different valleys and towns. What a fantastic experience this has been for me. I have really enjoyed working in this environment; it has been inspirational. I highly recommend it!

This is my second to last ruined cave house installation, Domesticity. Installed with Stefan’s doors, the piece includes eight headscarves with differently coloured wood block patterns, the pairs of knitted woolen socks I accumulated from the women in the villages here, tea house table and chair, and several found objects: pottery bowls and urns, empty walnut shells, oil lamps, a skull and bones.
