Sanatorium participated in the 1st International Artist Initiatives Istanbul Meeting – held between October 2-6, 2009, at Kadırga Istanbul 2010 Art Production Center as a parallel event of the 11th International Istanbul Biennial with the collaboration of Istanbul 2010 European Capital of Culture Agency and Art Pie – with the work Euroshaper, a co-production of Tunca Subaşı, Guido Casaretto, Can Ertaş and Cemre Şenoğlu. Designed as a helmet which can “transform the non-European skull into the ideal European skull in 3 months with 15 minutes exercise everyday”, is a work with an ironic point of view on the two ‘opposite’ identity definitions perceived as “European” and “non-European” of a parody of an invention which would provide that “non-Europeans who feel European will look like a European with all of their being”.
