Cigdem Aydemir’s public artwork Plastic Histories involving public monuments, augmented reality, an exhibition of digital prints and video works as well as public tours will premiere at Vryfees festival in South Africa July 2014. Also a recent recipient of the Ian Potter Cultural Trust grants Aydemir’s ambitious public art project Plastic Histories explores the nature and meaning of historical monuments. It is an attempt to visualize this process, in particular to acknowledge publically the contribution of women from all races, communities and sexual orientations to the grand narrative of a post-Apartheid South Africa.
