As a scientific discipline examining the life environment and interactions among living things, ecology constitutes a prominent feature in the works of the artist. The bonds between man and man, man and society, and man and animal belong to a line of thought that does not “hold on to memory” but strides onwards. The destruction of the ecosystem by an industrialising sociality that asserts its dominion over nature and over the animal constitutes a conceptual part of the work of Çelebi. Confronting the development of human thought with an aim of establishing domination over nature, through each and every piece in the exhibition “Not Withdrawn from the Ecosystem” the artist postulates that the possibility of transitivity between the living and the inanimate could only be attained through rethinking the system that is created by the bonds formed through the interaction of these entities.
