Ankara, turkije 

Kunstproject "Scratch" van Marco Cops was een tijdelijke tentoonstelling in Ankara. Het project was een grote foto van 600x120cm die voorzien was van een "scratch"laag. De foto wordt er afgekrapt  en een spiegel met tekst kom te voorschijn.

cratch is temporary art project that was shown during the Cankaya Publi Art manifestation: 'Benimde kalbim var', that was held from end of May till half June 2011.

It consist of two parts: a scratch lottery and a big size rub-off photo in public space (600 x 120 cm).

The idea behind the ‘SCRATCH’ project is a combination of two aspects.
First the project has a local orientation, (the project has to fit into the local context), with a cultural and historical reference to its surroundings, using cultural phenomena’s that already exist, or phenomena’s that are often used by mainstream groups.
Secondly I have a personal interest of using art as a platform for groups in society that are in a certain need for a platform, for example to be able to express themselves, or to make invisible activities (or people) more visible in public space. I use Art to create a strategy or method that these people can use, and doing so becoming part of the mainstream culture.
Often those groups are operating in sub-cultures, sub economies, or acting on an illegal or semi-legal base.
With the work for Cankaya I try to create a platform for one specific group, the street sellers.

The project consists of two parts; both have a strong conceptual bond with each other.
One is a scratch lottery, where the winner that has a lot with tree identical images of one street seller wins not only a picture of that street salesman, but more important, the picture will be handed out to the winner by the street seller himself giving the winner important additional information about his life and reasons why he does it.
As an artwork, the picture that was won will be explained to other viewers that see the pictures in a later stadium.
The owner / winner of the picture has to explain over and over again the backgrounds of the picture and becomes thereby the constant factor of telling the story of the street sellers. 

The second part of the project is a stretch photo of almost all participating street sellers. They are printed on a layer of rub-off ink. By scratching away the faces, the text that the street sellers want to participate with the community becomes visible in a second layer.
This work refers to both the scratch lottery itself, and local history (the iconoclastic era). Instead of giving this scratching action a negative connotation, the scratching gets a positive touch, by freeing the texts of the street sellers.
