Kurbak started to work on Chronolace Studies and her collaboration with the curator Basak Senova in the course of the CrossSections project (2017-2019). From this overarching research, she extracts a fragment, The Standstill Crochet (2021), composed of found and crafted crochet doilies and mechanical instruments. In this respect, the exhibition contains four experimental hybrid objects, connecting two distinct 19th Century techniques: domestic crochet lace making and mechanical motion picture technology. While the objective in precinema devices was to create the illusion of motion, hand crocheted doilies were intended for precise and uniform repetitive patterns. Kurbak creates a tension between these two techniques by producing a standstill effect, which furthermore reveals the qualities and nuances of handcraft.
