Sabire Susuz (1967, Kütahya) refers to the unstable and slippery stance of life thanks to the materials and techniques she uses in her works. While there are many shortcuts to creating a pictorial image, he spends so much time on the making phase, which is defined as craftsmanship, and emphasizes the process itself. In other words, it tries to slow down the movement aimed at the result by highlighting the process of formation, in short, it focuses on time. Sabire Susuz creates images by attaching them to a cloth with a pin, while painting the labels bearing the brands and usage instructions of the garments with a special intervention in accordance with the compositions she designed. While using the labels painted in different techniques, his works, which take care not to impair the legibility of the brands, create a surface for unstable and dynamic forms as well as the mosaic effect it carries. Just like the conceptual meaning of the brand and the label, the fact that “the needles can be removed with a simple movement and only an empty cloth remains” in the works of the artist reminds us of the fact that branding is not an identity acquisition process, but an attached illusion that can be destroyed at any moment.
