2013 – 2018
video animation, 6 minutes, 40 seconds, loop
An animated cartoon in the form of a female grater embodies and voices a script that combines in a poetical sense vocabulary from the chemistry world, especially in relation to the chemical reactions; definitions of tear gas from Wikipedia; chanting from the market sellers in Rotterdam; list of different types of meat and kitchen tools; and closing and openings from e-mail vocabulary.
The script was originally performed at the exhibition Dutch Art Institute Istanbul at the Galata Fotoğrasanesi Fotoğraf Akademisi, Istanbul, September 2013. Curated by If I Can´t Dance I Don´t Want To Be Part of Your Revolution, Amsterdam.
The video animation was produced by the Buenos Aires Museum of Modern Art for the solo exhibition Cuerpos Pájaros (Body-Birds), Buenos Aires, November 2018 – March 2019.
