Falling, photo, 2005

The Swing, video, sound installation, 2005

Curator: Beral Madra
Contemporary Art Center, Istanbul, Turkey

The photograph entitled "Falling" reveals a view of Istanbul, shot from an odd angle and mid-air, giving the picture the feeling of the orientalist prints. The sky is cloudy and depressive, extending to the horizon as a colourless hole. The legs of the human being (the artist herself) implicate that she is ascending or descending rather than flying.

The Swing
In her video work "The Swing" she performs a swinging act, moving to and fro on a self-made simple swing. The steady pulsing rhythm embellished with the cling clang of the metal objects hanging around implicates an atmosphere of childish persistence and amusement. Yet, the isolation and solitude in the woods is weird and constantly moving from one unidentified to the other is a journey between two poles.
