Gulay Semercioglu's new commissioned work Cube in a Cube (2018), is a personal interpretation of an Ottoman Empire textile from Anatolia, which has historically been believed to bring prosperity, fertility and happiness. Upon closer inspection the work reveals its medium-weaved enamel coated silver wire and screws, a technique that recalls the women’s movements of Turkey and the act of knitting as a form of resistance and subversion.
