Ed Atkins


1 January 2015 – 31 December 2015

Commissioned by the 14th Istanbul Biennale and produced thanks to the support of Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Hisser is a multichannel video installation by Ed Atkins, presented in the spaces of a decaying 19th-century palace on the Island of Büyükada. Created with digital animation and inspired by a true story, the work depicts the last, restless moments in the life of a man, whose home is about to be sucked into a cavity in the earth.
