KotorApss Installation

 agora (/ˈæɡərə/; Ancient Greek: Ἀγορά Agorá)A place of congregation, gathering place or an assembly; central public space in ancient Greek city-states. The agora was a center of the athletic, artistic, spiritual and political life of the city.

According to the ancient saying the red ochre-stained rope has been used to gather the citizens who were scattered around agora of Athens to attend the meetings of the assembly. Citizens with red-stained clothes that didn’t attend the meeting were liable to a penalty.
The concept of the installation is based on the analysis of the inner structure hierarchy and the process of the fabrication of the rope, resulting with an eight yarns rope and the knots are gradually expanding as they move away from the anchor point. The big rope opens up to form the space provoking and marking the general assembly – the agora. This is a pop-up agora, a place of gathering and collective operation in Kotor. Now we stand as the core thread of the rope, no we are the yarns, we form the rope.
