Nilbar Güres is exhibiting as part of AFTERGLOW at Yokohama Triennale 2020 curated by Raqs Media Collective.
In the series ‘Unknown Sports’ women assemble in a gymnasium. However, rather than undertaking normal exercises, they adorn the equipment with household items, and integrate these into their exercises. The positions and movements relate to housework, fashion, beauty and body care. In the rituals performed in these « unknown sports » the women make the patriarchal private realm public, wittily subverting the roles imposed on them by society.
