Ali Kazma’s most recent solo show debuts the artist’s first synchronised triptych video work ‘Tea Time’. Using the notion of rhythm, Kamza reveals different manifestations of time in space in this work. The video was shot in a Paşabahçe glass factory, where one million pieces, including 300,000 tea glasses, are produced daily.

The artist sections off parts of the video according to the number of revolutions per minute each machine operates at. He reconstructs time by using a dynamic audio-visual language, combining triptych images and their related rhythms like orchestrated scores.

A renowned video artist, who represented Turkey in the 2013 Venice Bienale, Kazma (b. 1971) has focused more and more on space in his recent works. He also employs abstract imagery in the hope of opening up new territories where one can contemplate time and the world we live in.
