walking home 

a walking performance over distance

with support of Performistanbul and LADA

supported by British Council’s #WomenPowerinCulture Grant Scheme

London/Istanbul

march-december 2020

 

A walking performance over distance which invited 32 women participants from Istanbul to share footsteps and a discussion on where it feels like home for them. While the participant was walking towards the place which she describes as “home” in Istanbul, I walked with her in my city, connected via a phone call. With the following questions; “If I ask you to walk me home, where would you take me? Does home mean feeling safe? What makes you feel at home? Is it where you live now or a different place? Or is it not even a place? Now, it is time to walk and find home!" - we were searching together for the answer of what could be the meaning of “home”.
