News coverage from conflict areas generally consists of sensational material. The footage reflects only selected 'moments of reality'. While local daily life continues as usual, it’s mainly overshadowed by footage that either glorifies or sensationalizes violence or its consequences. “Which images are worth showing?” and “How to produce images?” become central issues in the works of belit saÄŸ. Her videos focus mainly on the rhetoric, presentation and manipulation of images of conflict, with a particular investigation into the role of the image maker in the politics of representation. saÄŸ’s work discusses the imaginable and unimaginable, the audible and muted, ethics and aesthetics, distance and involvement; it is an exercise in curiosity, going after what is visible and audible in the frame, and what is, simultaneously, escaping it.
