MESP 2012 The Agent Ria:registeredinart Artist’s Talk and Screening – Hakan Akçura
Saturday 18 February, 4 – 6pm at Stills

An invitation to a collective screening with the artist, where he will introduce this work and discuss his practice.

Phuket: Two Sides of the Islands. Sea Gypsies were the first people to settle in Phuket over 1000 years ago and still survive today selling fish, seashells and craft items to locals and tourists. Akçura’s documentary shows aspects of this community’s contemporary life and the precarious nature of sharing the waters of Thailand’s tourist paradise. 

Artist Hakan Akçura has exhibited widely across Europe and the Middle East. Recent exhibitions & screenings include: Ars Retorica, Universite Paris 8, Paris; Where Fire Has Struck, DEPO, Istanbul; Videfesta’ 10, Goethe Institute, Ankara; Temps D’Images Festival 2010, Lisbon; and HEP, Sazmanab Project, Tehran.

FREE, booking recommended.
