Maria Karametou is an   artist who lives and works in the U.S.,
where she is a professor at George Mason University.
She is currently in Istanbul on a Fulbright Grant.
The work in this show was created during her five and a half month [163
days] stay here.

'In the globalized megalopolis environment of our era, which suffers from
hurried transactions, overpopulation and repetitive routines, as crowds of tourists rush about to see it all, I want to pause, reflect and express the fleeting everyday image - that which will stay' Karametou says.

Four little books, each corresponding to a week, document her day-to-day
experiences of the first month, while other works in the exhibition, some created on her
teabags, relate to fleeting moments and unknown people that leave their imprint on memory.
