The Heart of the Flâneuse

The Heart of the Flâneuse, 2017
lecture-performance, 30’

“For the exhibition Flâneuses, Yasemin Özcan produced the artist’s book titled Marmalade Skies featuring short stories that invite the viewer to think about the presence of women in public space via different histories, geographies, and characters. At the artist’s lecture-performance titled The Heart of the Flâneuse, which draws strength from this book, with a wink to the memory of Istiklal Street and Marais, we hear the heartbeats of flâneuses who continue to sway under marmalade skies.”
