Artist’s Book Edition of 20
22 x 22 cm, 50 Pages, Stitch Bound
Full Contact Extended was produced during Book Lab, a five-week event for the creation, production and presentation of artists’ books that took place in 2013 in Istanbul.
Book Lab was initiated by photographer and book designer Frederic Lezmi together with Istanbul gallerist Kerimcan Güleryüz.
“A book inside an existing catalogue. Literally an extension of Gözde’s series. At the time of the exhibition, she had to get rid of some of the connecting images because of the economy of space. So to get them in, we tore apart her existing catalog and stitched those images where they belonged, in between.”
“Remixing the historicization of herself. An artist catalogue as an index of something that happened at a certain point in time. And as the work changes, as the artist changes, that catalogue is only a representation of something that was outdated the minute it was produced. Then, the artist editing what happened to foreshadow what can happen, only makes sense.”- Merve Ünsal

“Fight-Flight-Freeze Leftover Notebooks consists of left over test prints of Gözde Türkkan’s Fight-Flight-Freeze series. Unable to throw them in the bin, we’d kept them for a possible future use. As part of Too Many Books‘ ‘Leftover Notebook’ series, these pages, along with an additional blank pages, are turned into a Leftover Notebook. Each of the 7 notebooks also has an original test print placed inside the back of the book.”
