The exhibition opening of Notations by Dhoku, a Parallel Participant of Istanbul Design Biennial, was held on 16 th October 2012. Within it’s traditional context, the ideogrammatic motifs that a kilim embodies signify archetypal cultural codings. The resulting visual narratives ‘recorded’ by weaving into the kilim may also feature notational qualities. The morphology of a motif, on the other hand, is dictated by the -imperfect to some degree- qualities that the material and the weaving processes inherit. Within this equation, structure and morphology shape each other interdependently. Notations features the interpretations of this conceptual framework by the participating designers Ayşe Birsel, Bibi Seck, Ela Cindoruk, Filip Pagowski Koray Özgen, and Superpool, exhibiting the subjective codings of the designers as they are recorded on kilims.
