A mural and a site-specific installation commissioned by MAXXI, is actually a workspace setting up a collection of short daily stories. Oykut composes, decomposes and sometimes overlaps her drawings, which are taken from small size papers. They appear and disappear along the exhibition space. Panning the picked details of daily moments, she connects Istanbul and Rome in a communal space.
