In her video Borderline, Nevin Aladağ puts the spectators aboard a boat that is sailing along the coast of the Greek island of Samos. The view is directed towards the unchanging blue backwash. A screen on the boat also shows its position using GPS data, revealing that it is following the invisible sea border between Greece and Turkey.
For the dance performance MOVE, Nevin Aladağ explored the question of how certain people move and what fates are told by their movements. The result is a series of movement sequences, which Aladağ has taken out of their natural, individual and social context and abstracted from their protagonists. These movements are being enacted simultaneously by several performers in the exhibition space.
