Non presents Annika Erikkson
Gallery Non is presenting a new video installation from Annika Eriksson. The work, titled “I am the dog that was always here (loop),” will be on show at the Galata Greek Primary School.
The video is set in the outskirts of Istanbul, and focuses on moments of transition and marginalized experiences of time, seen through the lens of a street dog. Having been moved by the authorities to peripheral pockets and no man’s lands outside the expanding city, the dogs are continuously moving along lines of gentrification and corporate city making.
Through looping and repetition, the video relates this process to an experience of time: exploring the present as a complex gap between past and future, one in which an increasing process of erasure, spurred on by a shrinking public realm, also removes other registers of being and seeing.
