Bilim Kurgu / Science Fiction (2014)

Performance; used tear gas cannister, tent, lemon, swimming goggles.
Performed Kose, 2015.
Artists Kathryn Hamilton, Onur Karaoglu, Fatih Genckal, Can Eskinazi.

Research and documentary-based work using footage shot during the Gezi Protests in Istanbul by Studio 4, and then reworked by film-maker Can Eskinazi, the performance mixed familiar objects from the protests (gas canisters, lemons, tents) with text about a young Istanbuller who had been in Texas during the uprisings, watching them from afar on his computer while eating pork that tasted like sin.
