Café Basile Paris
Double chance 2001
İn these suite of images, even though it looks as if there is a narration, İ’m mostly expoloring the idea of suggestibility in the form of a (shadow) character who strolls inside/outside the café.
Still like images like the redbottles ashtrays ( cendrier-cendres y est, why not ?)
Doubt of hellish thoughts might occur to this lonely stroller.
The double chance is an old poster of lottery/maybe life’s LOTTERY sample to be in hell or heaven or in between.
I choose to show these detached images as a llide show as a plastic form (with repeated mix of blured and vivied images).
Dufy’ poster of ‘’la croisette’’ a glimpse to the capitalistic world’s heaven.
THE SPACE is filled with this very dense light and air.
The shadow is very frequently around the poster BOBİNO where just like EVE in paradise is the beautiful blonde girl miling, looking far away and posing for love croisieres. İn fact, it also presents the PUBLİCİTY, advertisement for a danse show of a cabaret in 60’s in Paris
When the machine makes that sound and probably is always a remendir of calculations. Calculations of life…just like the man in confrontation seen from the exterior ready for his verdict.
A little fur further, near the bar is a door leoding downstairs, to the STOKAGE to the unknown, uncalculated just like (the newspeaper which carries the word ‘’SOCİETY’’
The end image is this passanger shadow that disappears on the paysage way.
İnspired by DANTE’s love in his own real life for Beatrice who passes away in her youth, who continues his strange trip with VİRGİLE in his book the DİVİNE COMEDY (hell purgatory, and heaven)
