The focus of Asli Cavusoglu’s work stems from experimental narrative exercises on loss, repetition, replicas and narrative interplay across various art media. In the work In Patagonia after Bruce Chatwin, she re-enacted a journey in South America twenty years after Bruce Chatwin’s, depicted in the blurred reality fiction novel In Patagonia. Her journey can be read as the initiation of a fascinated reader of the book who wants to create her own experience, visiting those places named in the book and using the same means of transportation used by Chatwin, finding the same people Chatwin talked to. Asli Cavusoglu planned to address the improbable by looking into the knowledge potential in Cambridgeshire and incorporate this into a new sculptural work.
