“Ultimately, our real home is our life.”
Pera Film presents Our Real Home is Our Life, the online film program within the scope of the exhibition, Impossible Homecoming, that was opened in April at Pera Museum.
The works of Etel Adnan, who was born into a family with many languages, religions and identities, portrays her history migrating through geographies, the weight of this world and the search for the place we call home. Our Real Home is Our Life includes various forms of moving image: videos of conversations with Etel Adnan, documentaries that follows the traces of her work, and essay-films that are inspired by her oeuvre.
The program that will take place between the 6th and 20th of August will show Words in Exile, the documentary which depicts, through visuals fragments, Etel Adnan’s unique portrait shaped by multiplicity of languages, of peoples and their identities; Five Senses for One Death, in which Etel Adnan, together with Gavin Bryars, deals with topics of memory, archeological excavation, and historiography at the intersection of artistic practice and scientific research; I See Infinite Distance Between Any Point and Another, which is one part of the trilogy by Otolith Group’s experimentation on both politics and aesthetics of water, revolving around the movement of thought and of ocean; and lastly, In Conversation with Etel Adnan, an interview with the artist conducted by the Ireland Modern Art Museum’s curator Rachael Thomas on her work and life in 2015.
The program will be streamed at film.peramuzesi.org.tr between August 6 - 20, and only be accessible to online audiences in Turkey. As per legal regulations, all our screenings are restricted to persons over 18 years of age, unless stated otherwise.
Our institutions have been stuck on linear Neo-Platonic tracks for 24 centuries. These antiquated processes of deduction have lost their authority. Just like art it has fallen off its pedestal. Legal, educational and constitutional systems rigidly subscribe to these; they are 100% text based.
