Hello, I am a Brazilian video-artist who came to Istanbul to realize the second part of my long term project: The Narrative of Inadequacy. I am recruiting English speakers here in Istanbul to conduct brief interviews for this project. All it would involve is for you to come to my studio near Moda for half an hour, on a given date, and tell your story. What story you may ask? I am looking for stories of moments of inadequacy in a sexual context. Why? Because I think we have inadevertently bought into the myth that things are supposed to run far too smoothly, creating a distorted picture which leaves us feeling alienated and alone when they don’t. My idea is to create a semi-anonymous tapestry of accounts of such episodes to create a collective body of stories where notions of what we take away from “bad” experiences emerge as valuable. These accounts are to be made facing away from the camera, so that all we see will be your neck and shoulders. So you don’t need to worry about being too exposed. The Narrative of Inadequacy is a think piece about memory, storytelling and being naked and vulnerable. You can see the New York installment and read more about this project here: http://www.celesteprize.com/artwork/ido:118236/ Please email me at skaren72@gmail if you are interested in contributing. Best Regards, Karen
