     8' single channel video (2014)

    This video shows five collaborators scribbling questions on a found blackboard retrieved from the storage area of the Istanbul art space, 5533. Sentences written on the board refer to the questions raised in different projects organized by this artist initiative over the last two years. The issues range from the binary of 'artist's initiative versus the initiative' to what defines periphery in Istanbul. In the video, the more actors come in and out of camera range and switch places to fill the board with their questions, the more illegible the questions become. This simple gesture opens up speculation about how the initiative works and the variable stance of artists, curators and even spectators who interact in the space.
