Stabbing the River

2019, collaboration with Célia Hay during Every Me Adana Artist Residency curated by Mustafa Boğa

Stabbing the River is a collaboration between Célia Hay and Pearlie Frisch as they embark on a quest with an irrational end: stabbing a river. An oneiric gesture towards landscape captured by the river Seyhan in Adana, Turkey. Here, the act of stabbing repeated towards the exhaustion of the subject (the river, or the stabber?) is declinated through an assemblage layering the traces of those strokes.
