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 stiklal Street and Marais, we hear the heartbeats of flâneuses who continue to sway under marmalade skies.
