"What we need to question is bricks, concrete, glass, our table manners, our utensils, our tools, the way we spend our time, our rhythms. To question that which seems to have ceased forever to astonish us. We live, true, we breathe, true; we walk, we go downstairs, we sit at a table in order to eat, we lie down on a bed in order to sleep. How? Where? When? Why? Describe your street. Describe another. Compare."
- George Perec
Pera Film’s sixth edition of Hors Pistes Istanbul gathered under the title The Artist vs. Life captures the social and intimate narratives and observations through the personal voyages of eight artists: Narimane Mari, Frank Smith, Gurwann Tran Van Gie, Isabelle Prim, Shanti Masud, Marie Losier, Jonathan Caouette, and Cecile Paris. As each artist explores history, reality, and the subliminal under different visual languages and stories, their common denominator presents itself as a matter of standing against the norms, questioning what has been built up or presented so far within the world of the artist. Such becomes a crucial survival, to live and create in order to make sense, to rationalize, to bring order to a world of chaos, disorder, and turmoil. As Andy Warhol once claimed: “They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.”

About a year ago, Ela was dead for seven minutes. Death had come to her as she was watching her younger brother play gleefully in the sandpit at the park. A sudden flash that washed her world with a burning white light, a merciless roar resembling that of a monster…
