SALT Galata, Workshop II-III

How do visceral organs, often unnoticed during the rush of daily routine, relate with each other and life? What form of knowledge guides the individual tissue, space, and rhythm of these organs? Developed on the definition of “organic wisdom,” Gizem Aksu’s cinematographic performance YU (2016) invites the viewers to sense and perceive the body while questioning its socio-cultural and linguistic attributions.

Organized in collaboration with SALT and Atelier Muse, the performance is without dialogue and only suitable for people aged 18 or older. Free admission. Participation is limited to 60 people and reservations are not accepted. The doors will remain closed after commencement in order not to disturb the performance.

Gizem Aksu is a dancer, choreographer and instructor pursuing her studies on Proficiency in Art at Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University State Conservatory. While her articles and interviews are published by Mimesis Dergi, she continues her Organic Wisdom workshops.
