Clouds is a tragi-comical docudrama that takes place in a small Aegean village in Turkey. It depicts the true story of a family comprised of an uncle, an auntie and their niece, from a neutral and humanistic standpoint. The film observes, for four years of their lives, the relationships between the characters and the events that unfold around them, trying to understand the aspects that contribute to, as well as hinder, the development of communal empowerment and local economic sustainability. Focusing on their daily narratives and the ensuing emotional impasses, it presents different modalities of existence each character establishes in order to survive and to persevere.
Coffee was served with much splendor at the harems of the Ottoman palace and mansions. First, sweets (usually jam) was served on silverware, followed by coffee serving. The coffee jug would be placed in a sitil (brazier), which had three chains on its sides for carrying, had cinders in the middle, and was made of tombac, silver or brass. The sitil had a satin or silk cover embroidered with silver thread, tinsel, sequin or even pearls and diamonds.
In 1998 Ben Jakober and Yannick Vu collaborated on an obvious remake of Marcel Duchamp’s Roue de Bicyclette, his first “readymade” object. Duchamp combined a bicycle wheel, a fork and a stool to create a machine which served no purpose, subverting accepted norms of art.
Inspired by the exhibition And Now the Good News, which focusing on the relationship between mass media and art, we prepared horoscope readings based on the chapters of the exhibition. Using the popular astrological language inspired by the effects of the movements of celestial bodies on people, these readings with references to the works in the exhibition make fictional future predictions inspired by the horoscope columns that we read in the newspapers with the desire to receive good news about our day.
