LOOP Barcelona

with Cemile Sahin

Esther Schipper is pleased to announce our participation in LOOP Barcelona 2022, a fair exclusively dedicated to artists' films and video works.

This year we are presenting a work by Cemile Sahin, Four Ballads for my Father - Spring which is currently also on view in the artist's solo presentation at Kunsthalle Osnabrück.

A major motif of the the multi-part Four Ballads for my Father is the role of water, in particular the economic and political effects of the GAP dam project in Turkey. Sahin’s film addresses the topic through a fictional lens, telling the story of the Kurdish family whose homeland was flooded by a Turkish water dam project and its members displaced between Istanbul, Paris and on the road.
