Tuesday 17/3/2015 @ 8 pm at Maskan Apartment Project, Beirut, an intervention at the toilet and an artist talk led by Merve Unsal.

It is only when a toilet ceases to function that we become aware of the space that it is included in. When function is disrupted, the walls feel like they are closing in, the decorative objects no longer evoke pleasure, and the tiles become menacing, slippery facades. Is it possible to disrupt this space through an image? Could this space of private corporeality become a space of private viewing and of “public” poetics? Merve installs a short video in marra.tein’s toilet, aiming to further this space as one of contemplation. She will also deliver a talk on thoughts stemming from and relating to this particular space.
