‘your body must be heard’ is a manifestation that hails through the thresholds of the lands of desires. It sees ‘homelands’ and identities just as sets of repeated acts, being incised on the body through each experience, wiped out as such through each. It is a call to escape the names, to flow, to become nomad. It borrows the words of hélène cixous, julia kristeva, ilhan berk and ana mendieta; and the images Turkish melodrama from my childhood to constitute and talk through a collage. The words mix, the words collapse. It is a suggestion to expand life.
