    Overlapping

     2'10" Single channel digital video (2017

    Swedish artist, Maria Andersson and Nancy Atakan have collaborated since 2012 when they discovered their shared interests in cultural transliteration and transcultural exchange. Their research about Ling Gymnastics as a modernist project in Sweden and Turkey resulted in several separate and joint works including this video.


    For the videos, the artists wrote the following text to describe their collaborative work:

    referencing a reference

    rhythm of colour

    linking

    dancing

    stitching

    circular movement

    circular thought

    noting notation

    threads of time

    sew and sew just so

    text on textile

    text on text

    text on text on

    cutting shapes

    shaping cuts

    passsing the past

    overlapping over and over

    catching thoughts

    losing track

    finding  ways.
