The installation ondan-bundan: inquiring on culture from this and thats explores the intra- actions within Azerbaijan’s continuously changing identity, by fragmenting projections of Soviet Azerbaijani films onto found objects. This research brings into conversation scenes from the films Arşın Mal Alan (Rza Tahmasib and Nikolay Leshchenko, 1945), Bir Cənub Şəhərində (Eldar Quliyev, 1969) and Ötən İlin Son Gecəsi (Gülbəniz Əzimzadə, 1983) to reflect on the construction of visual narratives as cultural identifiers in Azerbaijan. It combines Homi K. Bhabha’s theory on culture’s hybridity, alongside feminist theories from Nira Yuval-Davis and Giuliana Bruno to propose a textility of culture. One that derives from found remnants, fragments, reconstructions, refractions, and haphazards.
