Ekin Bernay

My Sandcastles

Duration: 2 Hours
Curator: Simge Burhanoğlu

Time: 18:00

I want to build sandcastles, with the innocence of a child. Let me build myself, by putting together my own pieces. I see the pain, and you see me.



Duration: 20 Minutes

Time: 18:30

The second performance within the series “8” by AslieMk, investigates an artificial cycle of exchange and transitivity between two bodies.
Throughout the performance, the duo is exhibiting a physical ritual of consecutive recurrences, by returning back an inorganic object that they remove from their body.

The performance explores the short-lived transitivity of conceptual focus, while accelerating, slowing down, interrupted or becoming impossible as the ritual re-forms its conditions in each recurrence.

Batu Bozoğlu

Just 15 Minutes

Duration: 15 Minutes

Long gone are the days where everybody had 15 minutes of fame.

Just 15 Minutes aims to channel the boundless and endless stream of personal narrative of the contemporary media, and to incite the audience to act against and liberate themselves from its exploitation. The performance is investigating the status where the contract is broken by the art piece that refuses the process of ending and entertainment.
