The artist short documentation of early work who has come who has gone will be screened in “Enduring Turkey: performance videos from Turkey and its diaspora” at Live Art Development Agency London.
The event is FREE but please RSVP
‘Enduring Turkey’ is a compilation of Live Art documentation and performance videos from Turkey and its diaspora. Focusing specifically on endurance performances, the programme will bring together examples from the pioneers of performance art with its latest incarnations, which refer to the conditions that trans, queer and feminists endure in the current political climate of Turkey.
The following videos will be screened:
Nezaket Ekici – ‘Blind Performance Installation’ (since 2007)
Nezaket Ekici – ‘But all that Glitters is not Gold’, Videoperformance (2014)
Özlem Ünlü – ‘Kâla’, Performistanbul (2018)
Leman Sevda Darıcıoğlu – ‘Who Has Come, Who Has Gone’ (2016)
Istanbul Queer Art Collective – ‘50.000’ (2014)
İz Öztat & Ann Antidote – ‘Suspended’ (2019)
The screening will be preceded by the curators’ introductory talk and followed by a Q&A session with Naz Balkaya from Performistanbul.
This programme is part of a wider series of events called ‘Turkish Delight’ which will take place between 17-23 March. Turkish Delight is curated by Queer Art Projects in partnership with CUNTemporary and supported by Arts Council England National Lottery Project Grants, the Mountain of Arts Research (MARs) and Centre of Feminist Research at Goldsmiths College, Live Art Development Agency (LADA) and Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club (BGWMC).
