Golems(Terra Cotta)

2020 – ongoing

Golems are a self producing community, forming narratives about the surface, the ground, and the underground. The first figurines, shaped with clay in small sizes, were created by Ceren Oykut in 2020. Oykut discovered clay left over from road construction that was placed under cobblestones in a village in Germany. She quickly shaped it and gave it to the ceramic kiln. Each figure is activated by interacting with another. Each group baked together acquires a unique content. Golems multiply over time and expand the narrative.
