On this deserted road in Argentina, it is hard to see anyone other than the poor boys and dogs playing. On the other hand, Veronica is quite confident that she passed from that road in her car, but has no idea if the thing she hit was a boy or a dog. Instead of stopping for help, she goes on her way, stopping by the hospital for an x-ray and spending the night at a hotel. She says she was in shock. When she gets back to normal, she decides to return to the road and check the newspapers. But how about the records in the hospital and the hotel? The Headless Woman tells the mental disturbance of a middle-aged, middle class woman who deals with the burden of a crime, although she is not sure if she has committed it.

Good News from the Skies

Good News from the Skies

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. 

The Ottoman Way of Serving Coffee

The Ottoman Way of Serving Coffee

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.

Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel

Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel

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.
