THE PRODUCTION AND TRANSFORMATION OF SPACE: DISASSEMBLING THE SPACE OF ARTISTIC PRODUCTION
 
While De Certeau defines space as “a practiced place”, Lefebvre declares that the perception, living and production of space is through body which occupies it. Grosz writes about space as being occupied by its inhabitants and how it is in constant transformation, where objects, subjects, and their relations are structured and positioned. In the space of artistic production, space is produced as a result of the artist's actions and body movements while practicing art. The artist is the subject and the artwork is the object which carry traces of its space and time. The artist studio can be traced back to 16th century artist inventories and is defined as a room or a space where an artist works. However, this simple definition is not adequate to deliver the essence of the studio: a complex space of production and transformation occupied by the artist. The aim of this study is to break down the atmosphere of the studio space and to raise a discussion on the spatial relations in the artist studio. These spatial relations form focus points of space and practice, space and identity, and space and time. In this pursuit, an interdisciplinary literature research has been followed comprehensively and selected modern and postmodern studio spaces are presented as examples. Lastly, post-studio practices are introduced as a shift in the perception of the spaces used by artists and the spatial relations of the studio are revisited, this time encompassing contemporary studios and their extensions.
