6 August – 29 September 2019

In Dun (Home, 2017) by Senem Gökçe Oğultekin (b. 1982, Turkey) two dancers explore the ruins of the city of Ani on the border of Turkey and Armenia. Their movements pull them apart and bring them together in bodily conflict and reconciliation, referencing the fraught relationship between the two countries.

I Need This in My Life (2016) by Argentinian artist and activist Fannie Sosa explores the healing power of women’s ‘bassgasms’ to counter sonic weapons which are often deployed to disperse civil rights protestors.

Nguyen Hai Yen (b. 1994, Vietnam) uses dreamlike cinematography in Summer siesta 6th hour counting from dawn. A young woman is absorbed by a Vietnamese film on TV while female figures in a forest with mirrored cutouts over their faces reflect back what they see.

Throughout 2019 the Artists’ Film International global consortium of partners selects moving image works on the theme of gender.

Senem Gökçe Oğultekin is selected by Istanbul Modern, Fannie Sosa by Fundacion PRÓA, Nguyen Hai Yen by Hanoi
DOCLAB.
