The work consists of 6 videos, 3 objects and 2 digital print collage.
The objects are still in work and progress.
The Videos are below:
The nectared dessert on the video is one of the popular street food in Turkey. It called 'Kerhane Tatlısı' which means - with a word to word translation- 'brothel dessert'. It is quite possible to find it in front of almost all the brothels in Turkey. Thus it has been named like that.
It is rumored that people prefer to eat that to get energy before having sex.
Object III (shed):
The form of this object comes from a small house/building* is placed in one of the -popular- queer cruising areas. In the night, despite street lamps' light, it is possible to find a hidden and unseen place in the shade of the building.
The audience can go in and observe outside yet they can be also observed from the unfunctional "keyhole". Thus, I want to invite visitors to an observation cycle.
Because of the object's dimension, it is not so possible to act inside in an upright position. By this means, I want to make the audience change their stance from watching stance to hiding stance.
*The building can be seen on one of the three videos.
is consisting of two images that have been taken by me and a found image. Images are taken in Berlin in a cruising toilet that has a glory-hole. Thus, I wanted to emphasize my production process(Berlin to İstanbul) and the hole-metaphor of the objects.
With this collage(lower-right),
I tried to refer to the sex-working industry in İstanbul and it's memory.
