Women in Kahves, 20056 channel video installation 12:51 total duration
This multichannel installation is based on a series of interventions in Turkish teahouses, where traditionally only men spend time and play games. The artist and three Turkish women entered several teahouses to drink tea and to play ‘OKEY’. A male assistant documented these actions with a hidden camera, with some of that material being used for the video piece.
