Yar bana bir eğlence (Oh, for some Amusement!)
Solo exhibition by Eleni Kamma at Galerie Nadja Vilenne, Liège (B)
13/09 - 18/10/2014
Oh, for some amusement! takes the form of a multi-media installation, operating as an experimental platform where 'national' narratives - within the context of contemporary states-nations of the previous Ottoman Empire - come together and cross over through cinematic, theatrical and reading formats.
The work looks back at moments of transition from the domination of one voice speaking for many in non-presentational, eastern participatory forms of spectacle to the domination of the image in representational, mass-media spectacle. The work furthermore examines how conditions of spectatorship affect questions of citizenship and social bonding today.
The project is supported by Mondriaan Fonds, NiMAC (Nicosia Municipal Arts Center), PiST/// Istanbul and the Theater aan het Vrijthof, Maastricht.
