In a live performance event, artist Ahmet ààŠ¸üt presents a filmic intervention in collaboration with musician Yasemin Mori, creating four unique soundtracks that respond to a recent feature film by director Kaan Mujdeci.
Like many of ààŠ¸üt's works, the performance deals with representation and social engagement, which in this instance reveal the fluidity of film and soundtrack as a representative media. As with earlier projects including the ongoing The Silent University, 2011-ongoing, an educational and performative resource for asylum seekers, he deals directly with socio-political issues, relevant on a global scale.
Ahmet ààŠ¸üt (born Diyarbakir, Turkey in 1981) is a founding member of the Silent University. Selected solo exhibitions include: Strategies for Radical Democracy, The Blackwood Gallery at University of Toronto, Canada (2014); Fahrenheit 451: Reprinted, Checkpoint Helsinki, Helsinki, Finland (2013); and Or whistle spontaneously, Delfina Foundation, London, UK (2013). Group exhibitions include: Giving Contours to Shadows, Neuer Berliner Kunstverein, Berlin, Germany (2014); Nouvelles Vagues - A History of Inspiration, Palais de Tokyo, Paris, France (2013); and Signs Taken in Wonder: Searching for Contemporary Istanbul, Austrian Museum of Applied Arts / Contemporary Art, Vienna, Austria (2013).
