“Cocoon/Koza” 2015
Videoperformance / Digital Video Installation; 17:26 min.

“Besides our parents, our friends and acquaintances also have a central importance with respect to our positioning in life. In years 2014-2015 Mehtap Baydu took photographs of important men in her life (among them are friends, acquaintances, artist colleagues, old school fellows or the owner of a kiosk where she frequently shops). The men photographed were free to pose as they like, but obliged to give their shirts to the artist after the shooting. Baydu cuts these shirts in long strips, makes a bobble and knits a cocoon around herself.”
