Weighing Words-Stigma

Digital C-Print, 30 x 42 cm, 30 x 42 cm, 30 x 21 cm each, 2020

In the Weighing Words series, I chose five heavy sentences, then calculated their respective weight. For example, I calculated the amount of air that I could inhale within the room when one of the sentences was spoken. Then I demonstrated in three ways how the weight of the spoken words leaves a trace on us. In Weighing Words-Stigma, the keywords of the four sentences are made of wire. Then they are placed on various parts of my body, and the corresponding weigher is placed on it for 10 minutes. The heaviest sentence which was 1380kg was not performed due to safety reasons.
