LOOP Fair: 16 - 18 November 2021
We are happy to announce the participation of Fatma Bucak to LOOP Fair 2021, Fatma Bucak, ‘Suggested Place for You to See it' and 'Then God Blessed Them’, 2013, part of @roselejeune curated section, "In Time", looking at relations between performance and video.
The two videos, 'Suggested place for you to see it' and 'And then God blessed them', are a two-channel installation work set Salt Lake in Central Anatolia. The work is an exploration where the fixed contemporary definitions of religion, gender hierarchy and gender politics, and their impact on society, are held in question through a dialogue around theatrically, audience and medium. The artist creates an almost palpable friction between a fictional scenario and the dialogue of the comments of the women, revealing certain cultural codes.
