Batu Bozoğlu

5 Days – 5 Hours a Day

Elgiz Museum, Istanbul


Performance artists’ works on creating/researching opportunities for ‘existence’ within intuitional courses in the performance series comes to an end with Batu Bozoğlu’s intervention. Bozoğlu, who embraces the analytical thinking and objective rationality, takes the space that witnessed serial actions under examination and produces new readings through the residuals in the space. He processes the discoveries into a historical story, labelling and archiving the foundlings where audiences can take part as well. He aims to turn the space into a study eld and an archeological site.
