Aslı Alkan, Childless Complete Woman, 2016
“After learning how to stitch from my aunt who is around her 50’s now, I have decided to make her portrait. I have imagined her in her 30’s. Her life was not that easy, had depression issues since I know her. She loves reading, handcrafts (master of many types), traveling and crossword and never got married. On the wall there is ‘childless complete woman’ poster (ode to one of our politician’s statement about ‘childless women are not complete’).”
This piece took nearly two months to complete! If you would like to see more of her Aslı Alkan’s work, check out her instagram. She is based in Turkey.
