Cos Ahmet’s work and research interests have always concerned the body. The question that he has started asking, and subsequently informs his work is, ‘how to be this body now?’. His new concerns address the body as medium, material, site and skin. The body becomes a specific site, with the notion of having its own architecture, the skin becomes this ‘other body’, and the body performs sculptural gestures through activating the objects choreographed by the body.
