Blind to the truth

DVD Video, Pal 4:3, in color, sound, in English, no subtitles, 7'03'', Marseilles, 2009


In Blind to the truth, 2009 we witness a real conversation between Deniz and a young man from Marseilles at a bar in the same city.The conversation is sometimes interrupted and manipulated by artists’ questions. The young man speaks about himself, Marseilles, Sarkozy, the song Hotel California, image rights, etc. Their conversation is interrupted by texts appearing on the screen, that are philosophical arguments about representation. Our perception is thus played with about who this young man represents.

Title of the work is taken from Lukas Duwenhögger’s collage on view at Asmali Cavit Restaurant in Istanbul.
