Iskele
Istanbul-Cologne: the video pieces and site-specific installations of Tessa Knapp trace the contemporary experience of traditionally and religiously shaped spaces within their cultural context. These works of art play with the foreignness, hidden mysteries and staged shifting of their contents  from the critical perspective of the present: subjective perception as the driving force behind the construction of meaning is an essential contrasting medium in Tessa Knapp‘s art.
The video piece “99 Beautiful”, which highlights the tense interaction between name charms, religious beliefs and the worldly attitude towards life of its Turkish protagonists, is discussed in this catalogue from both a German and Turkish perspective.
