Tebrik

Mem Morrison

2007

Tebrik, “congratulate” in Turkish, was a film installation of London based Turkish Cypriot weddings attended by Mem Morrison in the past thirty years exhibited alongside photos of Shoreditch weddings collected from the local Turkish Cypriot, Turkish and Kurdish communities.

Audiences were invited to come along and experience local wedding memories or share a personal wedding memory of thier own. Then invited to join Mem Morrison and take part in the craft of bomboniere making, a traditional wedding favour that they could then dedicate and give to someone special.

A Shoreditch Festival commission.
