This publication accompanies 'Respiro', an installation by the Turkish conceptual artist Sarkis in the Pavilion of Turkey at the 56th Venice Biennale from May to November 2015. It includes key essays by Defne Ayas, David Kazanjian, and Wendy Meryem Kural Shaw, with short image readings by Ruben Arevshatyan, Tuba Candar, Rakel Dink, Ozge Ersoy, Uwe Fleckner, Karin Karakaslı, Aaron Schuster, and Jalal Toufic.

'Through the arrangements of objects, images, thoughts, and codes that are released from both personal and collective memories, Sarkis will use the site of the pavilion as a theatrical stage for the cast of his works to investigate the ideas of infinite dialogue and transformation that lie at the core of his practice. The exhibition titled Respiro, meaning breath in Italian, will present an installation of mirrors, stained-glass panes, and site-specific neon works, and will be complemented by a composition by Jacopo Baboni-Schilingi, based on the artist’s drawing of the rainbow’s seven colours as a system of partitions.' - from website of the Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts
