Strolling the 14th Art Biennial Istanbul

Written by Sabine Küper on . Posted in Feed the Sense



The Video “Sad Waltz and the Dancer who couldn’t dance” by Janet Cardiff and Georges Bures Miller is really moving. A sad melody seems to conduct the dance of a computer-directed Marionette.

A female dancer in a black dress is stumbling over the stage. A hidden fist seems to pull her hairs suddenly lifting her feet from the ground. The work is placed on a desk in a basement room of the exclusive House Hotel in Karaköy. It’s set up triggers different associations. Elements of a Hotel-Bar-atmosphere are combined with motives from string-puppet-plays, computer based Porno-games on the Internet and the set up of an Animation-Film-Set. In some way the visitor of the Biennial is also stumbling through more then 30 venues in the exhibition. An art-marathon leading to most different venues

The Video is the result of strolling one day through the Biennial’s Venues in the Karaköy-district of Istanbul. There will follow more impressions.
