    The Kazi Izleri / Lines of Site exhibition was the collective outcome of the interdisciplinary project, An Intercultural Dialogue Through Art and Archaeology, supported under the Grant Scheme for Common Cultural Heritage: Preservation and Dialogue between Türkiye and the EU–II (CCH-II) implemented by the T.R. Ministry of Culture and Tourism with the financial support of the European Union. This project was planned and implemented by the Turkish NGO, the Friends of Aşıklı Höyük, together with the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona and the University of Dundee, and aimed to promote new knowledge and understanding of the Neolithic settlement and archaeological site, Aşıklı Höyük in Central Anatolia by bringing together artists, historians, art historians, archaeologists and anthropologists. From 2019, thirteen artists from different countries responded to the site through the generation of new artworks and artefacts that formed an international touring exhibition in 2022. Taylor produce a sequence of drawings, the Witness Series: Aşıklı Höyük, that were presented in the The Lines of Site / Kazı İzleri exhibition. The exhibition was first presented at the historical Hüsrev Kethüda Hammam in Ortaköy, Istanbul from 4-25 February 2022 (see: https://asiklider.com/en/category/site-exhibition/ ); followed by iterations of the exhibition at Matthew Gallery, University of Dundee (9 March-8 April 2022) and the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (27 April -20 May 2022) and in full at the Aksaray Museum in Anatolia, were the archaeological finds from Aşıklı Höyük are housed (10-31 July 2022). The exhibition was accompanied by an illustrated exhibition guide, an illustrated tri-lingual publication documenting the Art & Archaeology project, and a programme of public seminars involving the artists, curators, project team and guest speakers in each exhibition location.
