The seven-part correspondence between Isaki Lacuesta und Naomi Kawase, who had only briefly met beforehand at a festival, revolves around proximity and distance as well as what it actually means to meet someone and get to know them. Their joint film In Between Days shows scenes from their private lives, including intimate moments in home-movie style, sometimes without sound, as well as images of journeys to faraway countries, of a natural history museum in Catalonia, of prayers in Japan and of excerpts from a silent film by Segundo de Chomón, the Spanish Méliès.

Aşkın Güngör

The wind blows, rubbing against my legs made of layers of metal and wires, swaying the leaves of grass that have shot up from the cracks in the tarmac, and going off to the windows that look like the eyes of dead children in the wrecked buildings that seem to be everywhere as far as the eye can see.

The Bosphorus, which divides the city from north to south, separates two continents, renders Istanbul distinct for western painters, offers the most picturesque spectacles for western artists.
