Backwards Migration shows four different chairs, one a plastic Monobloc and others of varying genealogy, sitting around a table in a park in a café in Istanbul. In this ironic scenario, the talking chairs discuss issues related to mobility in the global world. As the video progresses, it becomes obvious that the conversation is also about the artist’s personal experience in a city undergoing transformation.
