Prohibited Letters, 2019

video installation
digital video, 3’, loop

The work departs from slogans prohibited from the street by the Istanbul Governorate during the 1 May demonstrations of 2018. In this video, we watch endless meanderings of letter groupings that are banned from gathering in a certain organized way, in a void. The video preserves the potential of the letters to suddenly come together to form words, and the words to form sentences.
