SINGING KEBAB & SINGING BABA

Two-channel installation, 3D Animation & VHS,  2015, 2 x 2 minutes

 

Video installation consisting of two screens facing each other on loop.

In 1995 I filmed my father singing a Turkish song on camera without knowing that the song contained a message for me. In 2015 I made a video work about a singing kebab in which I sing a song back to my father. Two monitors are placed across from each other and thus a dialogue is created that spans time and culture, a dialogue between my father and I.
