With the curatorship of Performistanbul, Bilsart will host the live broadcast of Leman S. Darıcıoğlu’s performance titled Complete Incomplete –taking place at the B2 house– between August 01-31, 2019.
Within the scope of the project, realized with the cooperation of Bilsart and Performistanbul, the Aga Khan Award-winning B2 House features a long-term performance for the first time and opens its doors to the audience via the artist. The performance will be broadcasted live at Bilsart’s venue, which is in a completely different city and focused on video art, in Performistanbul Youtube Channel in order to meet the audience at different locations.
Leman Sevda Darıcıoğlu, who spent her/their last year with a notion of endless repetition and a boundary study on feelings of exhaustion and impossibility, is carrying these notions that she/they has studied for a year via her/their performance that will last for 6 hours a day and 6 days a week throughout the month of August at the B2 House located in the village of Büyükhusun, Ayvacık. The performance sprouts from the architecture of the B2 House and invites its audience to question exposure, open(ness) and close(ness), and the desire for self-sufficiency and the acceptance of the deficiency of human-being who is always incomplete.
“This house is not in a state that wants to be ‘completed’ but rather claims its incompleteness. It is not the pursuit of infinite transparency of the person towards the other, endless union with the other, endless sharing, endless shopping. It calls upon the person to content oneself with what is at hand and to look at the sky, the sea, the tree, the soil, and stand still. So desire here does not seek the impossible missing object, it lives what is in itself.”
