URSULA NISTRUP

Line connecting the two docks of Istanbul and the Ponte della Libertà bridge between Venice and Mestre

This work consists of 5 sets of documentary color photographs, 30x40 cm. of performance and text.

 

Whilst I was on a visit to Istanbul, a merchant in the Grand Bazaar sold me a 5-km-long green fishing line, assuring me that it would be long enough to reach from the Asian to the European dock of the Bosporus strait. However, I never managed to extend the line over the strait. Later, though, Venice and Mestre were connected by this line.
