Koro/Choir, 2015, video of kinetic sculpture

The Turkish artist Server Demirtas has been making mechanical, robotic sculptures since the late 1990s, which he himself calls ‘mechanical fictions’. Within his work and the subjects he addresses, he often chooses to reconstruct certain repetitive actions, such as a woman looking up from a deep thought, or the postures of a sleeping child. He is interested in the emotions that these movements can evoke in the viewer. In Koro/Choir, the artist clearly chose sexually tinted actions.
