In her well-balanced series of artistic installations, Şaşmazer’s real-life sized protagonists are old and strong. They are neither helpless nor melodramatic. Dressed in black, they stand in unity with their shadows — as if both accept their relationship as a part of their being. Consequently the shadows have an equal formal and conceptual importance with the protagonist of the scene. Due to the shadow’s unbreakable physical relation with the falls and floors, the protagonists are too deeply involved with their surrounding physical space.
