Ottoman Chamber

Ottoman Chamber, 2017

Murat Haschu

Sinopale 6, “Transposition
curator: Nike Bätzner

In this Ottoman chamber the inside of a skull and a historic room interior symbolically melt into each other. The walls are decorated with newspapers on which certain forms are layered. They remind on Ottoman ornaments, forms of kilims and cerebral gyri of human brains. Which spheres of commemoration play key roles in our biographies? Which spaces penetrate our consciousness? Which experiences of space can function intercultural? Which dreamed, mediatized or real spaces give distinction to the perception of our environment? The animated short movie on the screen in the centre of the chamber absorbs and mirrors all these questions, and intensifies them in a surrealistic way.

Installation, indian ink and sweat on newspapers, wax-crayon, monitor, including the film “Phonophobia”, 2’30 Min.
