The images Ekici creates in her work are from the everyday environment, presented with either a theatrical sensibility or the beauty of minimalist sculpture. The simple act of eating grapes is attacked with intense energy, a hoola hoop (performance video Hullabelly ) is given a political spin, and the signal control room on a subway platform is converted into the world’s smallest concert hall for 5 days ( Sala dei Concerti performance installation with 40 musicians).
Fado is pleased to host a two-week residency with Turkish/German artist Nezaket Ekici in March 2008. While in Toronto, Ekici will create 2 new video works and will present a new live performance at Gallery TPW on March 28 and 29, 2008. Many thanks to Gallery TPW for hosting Ekici’s new work.
IN ADDITION: Ekici’s video performance Veil Fight is currently being shown at the 2008 Images Festival in Ceremonial Actions (curated by Leslie Peters) at the York Quay Gallery, Harbourfront Center. Exhibition runs from March 8 – April 20, 2008
Works by: Alissa Firth-Eagland + Brenda Goldstein, Nezaket Ekici, Louise Liliefeldt, Deirdre Logue, Shana Moulton
