With Taycan’s new music video “Ovala”(Rub), we want to emphasize the reality of sexual fluidity in Turkey. Our reality that cannot be hidden and undenied!
We are trying to show a discourse with the power of art against all judgments and restrictions. This body is ours. These orientations are ours! We all came together in this project with a striking, avant-garde and yet colorful attitude that produces multiple connotations with a protest stance without being political.
Don’t you think it’s time we rub off some norms without lingering?
