“...if we give the word to you, everything is already fiction, fictional and in a structure...”
MyFace Book, p.165
In the series of “Sound & Body of I & Eye : Bookperformance”, Çiğdem tells how a book (as an object) becomes a book in its physicality. Readers / Audience is welcome to join the performance, which is a very nature of Çiğdem’s “bookperformance”.
The challange in this specific bookperformance (that happened in the context of White Night Festival) is a long durational event that lasted 7 consecutive hours: 20:00-00:00, 9th September 2017 – 00:00 –03:00 10th September 2017, which are documented in 100 photopgraphs above.
The construction of the structure of the book passed through the following stages each of which took 1 hour:
1.Dream in mind-time 2.Dream in sky-line 3.Dream in pen-cil 4.Dream on page-stage 5.Dream in tree-house 6.Dream in wor-L-d 7.Dream in Uni-verse
In that challange, special thanks to the projected film reflecting the mind of a writer that is becoming an author. In the film shooting of which was a whole performance itself by opposing the preparation and any kind of theatricality, Çiğdem is performing her mind reflecting in her moves that are caught / shot by © Thierry Baumgarten at Lac d’Annecy, https://www.facebook.com/Thierry-Baumgarten-photographe-798049746879494/
