Pattern Kinship showcases a diverse landscape of ornaments and patterns, which intentionally were used in different cultures as Venetian blinds to secure intimacy and privacy. As objects in space, detached of their original setting, they become new elements of form, questioning human practices of protecting the private sphere. Aladağ has continuously worked on notion of social (in-)visibility and undermined a predetermined gaze on what is conceived as oriental and what is regarded as western. Her new series offers a juxtaposition of architectural forms that in reality could not have met, being from different geographical origins and from various times. Yet, as in her earlier Pattern Matching series it is precisely and only in her works that a historically impossible blend of divers styles and forms generates a unique new hybrid.
