Sibel Horada, 2007-2010
80 slides, slide projector, reclaimed couch
"Urban Knights" includes a selection of 80 slides from the collection of chairs I spotted on the streets of Istanbul between 2007 and 2010. The photographs were taken without any intervention, as part of my daily practice in the city. In the installation they are projected with a slide projector and can be watched by sitting on an old couch placed next to the projector.
The work was first exhibited at Sanat Limanı at the end of "the Forrest View" workshop with artist Danae Stratou in the context of Istanbul Cultural Capital of Europe 2010.
