Sit back and enjoy Candaş Şişman’s video dedicated to the influential Turkish sculptor, İlhan Koman (1923-1986). Rodin, Giacometti, Brancusi – they all informed Koman’s work, and now filter back into Şişman’s video installation, which went on display at last year’s Hulda Festival.
The festival, featuring Koman’s scientific sculptures, ran from March 2009 until November 2010, and traveled to Stockholm, Amsterdam, Antwerp, Bordeaux, Lisbon, Barcelona, Naples, Malta, Thessalonica and finally Istanbul. You can find more of Şişman’s work on Vimeo here.
