Mentee Focus :
Last spring I had the pleasure of working intensively with Simla on her new video while teaching her video editing with Premiere Pro. The final piece is beautiful and has already been shown in film festivals including: Sea of Art, On Art - Poland and Stockholm City Film Festival.
My new video, a title appears on black background, is an exploration on the nature of memory. Throughout the narration, translation, graphics, and performance, a doubling occurs. Two languages (Turkish and English) coexist as audio and text / spoken word and written word. Perhaps the answers are embedded in the act of asking the questions and not in answering them.
Simla Civelek (b. Istanbul, Turkey) is a performance artist based in Toronto, Canada. Her work has been presented at the FADO Performance Art Centre, 7a*11d International Festival of Performance Art, SAVAC, and Nuit Blanche in Toronto, Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops, Circa in Montréal, Art Nomade in Chicoutimi, Regart in Lévis, Glasshouse Art Life Lab in Brooklyn/NY, U.S.A., Experimental Action Performance Art Festival in Houston/TX, U.S.A., and OPEN Performance Art Festival in Beijing, China among other venues. www.simlacivelek.com
