Art Talk: Pelin Kırca & Deniz Artun

Bilsart is hosting Pelin Kırca’s exhibition entitled “Microscripts” between March 17-30, 2021.

“Microscripts” is an animated short film in homage to the Swiss writer Robert Walser.

“My prose pieces are, to my mind, nothing more nor less than parts of a long, plotless, realistic story. For me, the sketches I produce now and then are shortish or longish chapters of a novel. The novel I am writing is always the same one, and it might be described as a variously sliced-up or torn-apart book of myself.”

Robert Walser
