Boğaz (Bosphorus) 2017 (7min)
Buhar (Vapor) 2020 (10min)
During this endless night where the sun does not rise and darkness prevails, Woman and Man decide to leave their social life, their property, and civilization as we know it, to return to nature.
In this fictitious setting, when the two sides of Bosphorus are governed by two different governments in dispute. The woman struggles to watch the “other“ side to which she has never been and knows nothing about.
During their stop at a rest area on the highway, three women speaking an obscure language, fall apart from each other due to an unexpected encounter.
Booklaunch of the Catalog of the exhibition “Condition Room” by Apartment Project.
“Condition Room” is the last exhibition of the series of collective exhibitions and events initiated, organized and realized by Apartment Project and Sis Collective, which have traced the challenges for artistic practices and content productions.
The authoritarian shift that reshaped the political landscape in Turkey had direct impacts on creative classes. The restrictions on freedom of speech and consequent persecutions forced academicians, journalists, writers, and artists to adopt defensive strategies, in some cases to choose the option of an exodus.
As the last ring added into the chain, the exhibition Condition Room pertains to the next phase following the arrival into a new home country. What differentiates the sociological character of the recent wave of newcomers from Turkey to the city of Berlin is their formations within upper segments of the educated and urban middle classes.
They bear the marks of their past stories: they resist forgetting while we also consciously strive to forget; they persist in their own memories and claim their own words to constitute their own histories.
