The collaborative project “Creased”, of Gamze S. Saymaz and Jade Mulvaney, will feature a screening on Sunday 14 January at Komşu Kafe Collective (starts at 19:30). Those interested can also undergo “an experience for one” all through the month of February at Studio H.
From the organizer:
A collaboration between two artists, Gamze S. Saymaz and Jade Mulvaney, who co-directed the piece, “, creased; or, a screenpoem” is a performance-based video art project. Written, recited, and acted by an Istanbul-based (screen)poet, Gamze S. Saymaz, the 9-minute-32-second-long experience which tries the limits of multiple senses at once was also shot and edited by Jade Mulvaney, a South African film director currently based in Istanbul, in the fall of 2017.
The screenpoem, dealing with timeless existential troubles like time and sleep while also sleeplessly tackling the origin of ghosts, revolves around a girl who wakes up to find two eye holes cut into the bed sheet she was sleeping on and starts to experience strange events which are slowly revealed to be her playing pretend to train her fears and clothed e/motions relentlessy trapped and freed over and under again.
