Karen and I started our work with very emotional conversation about family and memories, I wanted to forget and Karen wanted to remember. We started our work with the graduation show, but this relationship of sisterhood and work went beyond and became so rooted that we have done many things together until today.

In many stages of work, we have faced many challenges, most of which were caused by cultural differences, but Karen always faced all of them with open arms but very honestly . the art practice of Karen can be understood as a kind of memory work whose goals is to document the artist’s exploration of her own memories. however, throughout this process, we also note the existence of other public memories, which seem to flow within and through her own explorations. in Karen's works the personal and the public appear to serve each other, And that's what's so strange but so fun about working with Karen .
