Bahar Yürükoğlu and Alex Sarkisian
I can't open the can because my nails are painted

New film work by Bahar Yürükoğlu and Alex Sarkisian explores the artists’ collaborative relationship, which began after they met in Svalbard, in the Arctic Circle, and continued until they met again exactly two years later in the inverse climate of Guna Yala, Panama.

By turning the camera on the artists, the film reveals concerns around their self-positioning in these particular sites, as well as their individual positions within the collaboration. Conceived as a film installation for GI, the work builds on narratives of the Anthropocene and inherited histories, whilst examining a relationship between the two figures based on uncanny humour.
