Tahiti Wayfarer
The series capture the journey of a catamaran that was built in a living room in Beşiktaş, a modest neighborhood in Istanbul, on it’s way to French Catalonia. The owner of the catamaran, Herve Bailen, built it within 4 months and as he is moving back to France with his family, the voyage of their Tahiti style catamaran takes the center stage. During the 4 storey transportation of the catamaran aptly named ‘Beşiktaş’, the family, their neighbors and the crate operators all go through various emotional phrases; a display of confusion, collaboration, despair and accomplishment.
