Flooded McDonald’s, 2008, Film Still, SUPERFLEX

Water Was Here Before is a duo exhibition by SUPERFLEX and TUNCA which will take place at Corridor Project Space from 21 April to 19 May 2017. The exhibition brings together different perspectives on power structures from each artist while Rajyashri Goody will contribute with a text that unfolds her research in between food and politics. Flooded McDonalds is a video work by SUPERFLEX that digs into consumer-driven power, influence and the indifference of large multinational companies in the face of climate change, questioning where the actual responsibility lies. They describe their practice as the provision of 'tools' which affect or influence their social or economic context. Desire by TUNCA is a series of drawings based on the sustenance that relates to social and cultural expansions. In this project the artist focuses on investigating favourite meals of various leaders of the 20th century. During two years of research, TUNCA worked for six months as the intern of a highly qualified chef to learn how to cook the meals. The project was finalised with an artist book on the same recipes. TUNCA will prepare one of his recipes for the opening.

Rajyashri Goody is a visual artist and ethnographer exploring community based practice, socially engaged art, and art as activism. She is currently a guest resident at the Rijksakademie.

SUPERFLEX is a Danish artists' group founded in 1993 by Jakob Fenger, Rasmus Nielsen and Bjørnstjerne Christiansen. They have recently been commissioned for the next Turbine Hall installation by Tate Modern.

TUNCA is a Turkish artist born in Izmir, currently based in Istanbul. He is currently an artist-in-residence at Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris.
