Fetine Sel Tuzel, recent graduate of Reading University, presents places and faces, a two-channel video installation.
The installation is a psychogeographic exploration of cities and people, from the urban centre of Reading where Tuzel did her fine art degree, to a ghost town in her home country of Cyprus, abandoned by its inhabitants 47 years ago during the conflict and now taken over by nature.
Fascinated by the connection between people and urban spaces, Tuzel’s two-channel video installation explores how people feel and behave in familiar and unfamiliar environments.
Sometimes the two screens complement each other, sometimes they contradict each other, showing points of contrast and moments of harmony across distinct urban spaces. Tuzel’s practice observes and questions how human experiences in urban spaces can be at once so similar and so unique.
Visitors do not need to book a ticket to visit this exhibition. If you are also visiting Anish Kapoor: Painting, you will need to book an exhibition ticket here.
