Comprising a series of installations, video art, and interactive performance art, Serap Erincin’s residency, titled Human Rights/Human Rites, highlights legitimized human rights violations in the Western/Civilized/First world. Erincin contemplates ritual as metaphor through a constellation of affective and sensorial pieces, such as LifeWest and WishBoat, which contextualize the refugee crisis in the Mediterranean, and The Time of Your Life, about the death penalty. Additionally, Erincin will host participatory events, including a workshop and a panel, that invite the community to create multimedia art and converse on issues at the intersection of social justice and aesthetics.
