Kesin bir şey yok
Nothing is certain
Kulağıma fısıldadıkları tüm tatlı sözler
All the sweet things they whispered into my ear
"All the sweet things they whispered into my ear", is an attempt to exorcise some of the damaging language I have been subjected to, solely because I am a woman. Let it be an ex-boyfriend, a friend, a lover, or a complete stranger who consciously or unconsciously used an objectifying, belittling, demeaning, disrespecting, dismissing, damaging language that left its own unique watermark.
The piece is a durational performance, that took place in House of Strange as part of "Nothing is Certain / Kesin birşey yok" (23.04.2019), a collective happening in response to uncertainty and fluidity of the past, present and future, gender-identity, sexual orientation and body politics.
An installation was set up and used as a stage of the performance, accompanied by a melodic sound piece composed of the language I have been subjected to. The performance continued until the end of the night where I was actively engaging with the audience in a character, conversing and offering bubble wrap to be popped.
