Animalium İstanbul | Sıla Ünlü İntepe

"With her work, a product of a long observation process, the artist investigates the transformation of animal habitats in Istanbul and its surroundings and the socio-biological interaction between non-human and human populations in the Anthropocene. The documentary, which is not limited to stray cats and dogs, covers many species that we don’t come across in our daily life. It traces the physiological and behavioral changes occurring in urbanized animals due to anthropogenic effects. Providing observational records and interviews focusing on urban transformation in a scientific and historical frame through two video channels, the work suggests an alternative to the conventional documentary form."
