Caninae Genesis(2021) shows the results of the collaboration with Günbike Erdemir at Atelier Grotto in the format of a contemporary fairytale. Tarçın and Eira, the two childhood dogs of the artists, are followed on their journey together to find the Moon, hoping they can find a way to communicate with her again, just like their ancestors, the wolves.

Within the collaboration between Günbike Erdemir and Atelier Grotto, the space has transformed into a shellcave, strongly based on both 19th century landscape park grotto’s as well as outsider art. The space has been designed as a stage for the mosaic bowls and the framed drawings Günbike Erdemir made during her stay at the Grotto.
