the Play (continuing, since 2015)
is a series of video performances. The work continuous based on my experiences.
The work is about the language of the mass media. I am trying to question the methods of the media and their effect on the audience of the media.
During the performances, I am playing a children’s game. To play this game, a person selects a word and repeats it until they become alienated.
For my current performances, I chose two cliche words from German and Turkish media:
Video I: It has been made in 2015*, reproduced in 2019.I chose ‘terrorist’ as a word. In the video, I am speaking in Turkish.
Video II: It has been made in 2019. I chose ‘Ausländer' as a word. In the video, I am speaking in German.
'Tongues' curated by Katelyn Dawe and Ishmael Lartey, in the Pink Pank Rotterdam, Netherlands.
