Ayfer Karabıyık, Merve Ünsal, İpek Burçak
Ayfer Karabıyık reads from her book “Hatalı Kesim – Yarıklı Kesim”.
“As I was saying hum, hum was happening. I was saying haw and haw was happening. With a mildly higher voice, my chin a little bit up, eyes staring just above the horizon like trying to remember a name that was forgotten three times before, I was inside a bus traveling with 120 km/h and I was about to give advic-es to the passengers: “We are so different and we are right to be different”. In fact my actual duty inside this bus was to sleep. In the last two years I have – not – programmed myself, by myself to fulfill this duty thor-oughly, or do I.”

Merve Ünsal, reads from her printed essay “Chrous” realized within the framework of the exhibition.
Could chorus be the conscience of the society and the columns that of the building?
İpek Burçak selects tracks from the album, which is the outcome of a collaboration be-tween her and Andara Shastika and mixes them with other related found footage sound materials.
The Mini CD, The Autistic Turn, is based on the book The Autistic Turn, a project of Ipek Burçak. It relates to AI and affects, emotion studies and idiosyncrasies of autism spectrum. Borrowing vocabularies from other artists, theoreticians who work on neurodiversity and left-field ways of beings, the Autistic Turn speculates on a new introvert and feminist turn.
