Untitled (Sinop Kale Cezaevi), 2012

Sinopale 4, “Wisdom of Shadow: Art in the Era of Corrupted Information”
Curator: Işın Önol

A video is projected onto a photograph. The photograph shows a wall with an open door, taken in the outside area of the former prison of Sinop. The video and the photograph are so precisely synchronized that they can barely be perceived as separate entities. At first glance, the picture seems to be still, a single moment, frozen in time. Only after a little while, the spectator discovers movements in the picture, figurative shadows growing slowly in the image. The people casting these shadows seem to stand behind the wall or outside the field of view.
