When art becomes "reality"


A work titled Fashion Victim from my 2015 exhibition Placebo Effect, and (below) a news clip dated 13 July 2017, on the trial of an assassination suspect against President Erdogan during last year's coup attempt. Defiant suspect arrives court wearing a shirt with "Hero" logo on. And all the press calls him "traitor," despite his shirt! I don't know what to say! Bizarre!.. Later during the day I've red more news on the subject, such as; Company producing the t shirts stops production and selling them, a student arrested for just wearing it and, hold on, President's supporters literally hung "traitor" t shirts on gallows!!!.
