Renowned Turkish fashion designer Hussein Chalayan has filmed Turkish Pop Star Sertab Erener performing the classical Turkish song “I am Sad Leyla” (Üzgünüm Leyla) with the accompaniment of an Ottoman orchestra. Currently on showcase at the Lisson Gallery in London with an exhibition that consists of an installation with the film as well as a life-size sculpture of Erener dressed in Chalayan’s updated version of a traditional Turkish costume upon entering the gallery.
“My approach has always been interdisciplinary; the new work is an extension of this. There is a certain freedom to working in an art context that has allowed me to further explore the ideas that underpin my work.”
