Journeys Festival International 2020 in Leicester, UK. Video performanceThe video performance explores the body through its isolation in narrow contiguous spaces, all within a large area. That is, it enhances the concept of space within the space and how the body deals with objects within this isolated space, which prevents freedom of movement within those spaces isolated from each other.
The performance video search in levels of freedom of movement, its connection to space, and its relationship to object. It is thus an attempt to transform acoustic spaces into visible ones through the speed of sound and the resulting dynamic movement.Video performance by Bahzad SulaimanVocal performance: Viktoria Nikolova, Andrew HopperMusic Composer: Christopher CollingsVideo Editing: Kadir AkgülThis project was funded by LIBERTY Creative Europe Programme 2020, Manchester, UK.
Penticton Art Gallery, Canada. Video performance The video performance “Saarbrücken 14/03/2020” aims to be an artistically performative exploration of the state of quarantine of the body for 30 days. The focus will be on the perception of body mass at home during the quarantine period. This documentation deals with the review and reflection of predetermined questions and problems we are confronted with during the quarantine period. It is intended to be a journey of recovery and awareness of our body and our limited knowledge of the concept of the body and the psychological distance between it and the objects in the home. The search will be in the form of fear and loss of confidence. It is what the body feels after sudden isolation, through social separation.
