Press Release

The interactive video installation titled, Passing 2003 consists of a video that is projected directly to the wall of the gallery space. In the video one can see the two different halves of the same tanker, which is incorporated as it passes slowly through Istanbul Gulf. It is significant to note that one half of the tanker passes during daytime as the other passes during nighttime. The unification of these two halves of the same ship is projected alongside with a sound installation that seeks the active participation of the viewer. The viewer can participate the work as s/he activates prerecorded sounds of the tanker horns that are audibly different. The overall installation suggests an experience in which the viewer can simultaneously be at the gallery space as well as the Istanbul harbor as she/hears and views the work.
Passing explores the problematic of temporal and geographical dislocations. In this work, the artist’s role is both performative and operative that allows a dialogue between her recent location in US and the location where this work initially recorded, Turkey. The uses of time in relation to the uses space plays another significant role that deals with the temporality of time and space. It may be considered as an interplay that suggests a sense of (be) longing to a land where the daytime is night and the nighttime is day. However, the sounds will remain whether recorded or not, despite the ephemeral nature of their waves. Regardless of whatever passes…
