Overview

Barış Doğrusöz’s practice finds its starting point in the residual matter of relatively recent pasts. His work revolves around the space where fragmented elements, such as found footage, military material, archaeological artefacts and codes, operate as both prequel to and premonition of a near-future fiction.

For SB13, Doğrusöz presents a work based on a method of video data analysis and extraction, in which he attempts to scale and represent oscillations and pulsations of historical events in the region, namely the Turkish coup d’état on 12 September 1980, along with geological disasters and other phenomena of the period. He uses maps that were broadcast on television when images of the territory were either unavailable in real time or not yet created in order to build the reports. Comprised of maps that were broadcast on French television news reports about Turkey, Heure de Paris: ‘The map and the territory’ (2015) is presented as a series of seventeen digital prints. Together, these prints form a datascopic and stratigraphic timeline of distinct events that are offered in reports across time. Each print depicts a unit of time that is made up of 1,500 images of one-minute segments from the original frame rate found in the archival footage. The work thus proposes an aesthetic exchange between real-time signal expression and the visual translation in strata of visual maps.

This project was part of Sharjah Biennial 13.
