Meriç Algün Ringborg, ‘Ö (The Mutual Letter)’ (2011)

Since she moved to Stockholm in 2007, Algün Ringborg wanted to collect all the words that are exactly the same in Swedish and Turkish. The printed pieces take the form of a quite peculiar dictionary, consisting of the 1,270 identical words. Like Gonzalez-Torres’s “Untitled” (Passport), viewers will have the chance to take copies of this dictionary. The other part of the work consists of a two-hour audio recording of all of these words read by Algün Ringborg’s partner and herself.
