Sakir Gökcebag creates strikingly original material-pictures, staged photographs, and structurally surprising installations and sculptures. For these he uses the simplest everyday things such as shoes, brooms, cutlery, wire, clothes-pegs, rolls of paper, umbrellas. He relieves them of their functional assignments and - by means of humorous inventions, clever reconstructions, strange displacements, fragmentation and ornamental arrangements - translates them into fascinating works of art. It's amazing how time after time he transforms trivial, cheap materials into delicate, aesthetic and artistic creations. Frequently he invents clever, pithy puns as titles. Sakir Gökcebag's body of work shows parallels to the approach of Fluxus artists, who treated everyday objects, ordinary utensils and plain materials with a similar playfulness and spontaneity.
