• Myths And Dreams

    Kıraathane, 5 July – 5 Sept 2019

    The legends of the lands we live on might be the oldest stories in history. The myths with a universality beyond time and place and a discourse on the human condition are the principal foundations of the literary tradition constituting the backbone of our civilization. Although they belong to such a distant past, the symbols from these stories are deeply rooted in the contemporary individual’s subconscious and they continue to appear before us, either among ancient remains all around Anatolia, or at the least expected corners of our cities, still as one of the leading sources of inspiration for visual arts.

  • PROFILER Exhibition by Art50.net at GaleriBU

    October 1-22 2016, GaleriBU

    GaleriBU hosts Art50.net artists for its season opening.

    Taking place between October 1 and 22, the exhibition PROFILER features works by Baysan Yüksel, Eda Emirdağ, Erim Bikkul, Genco Gülan, Karbon, Özge Yağcı, Saliha Yılmaz and Taşkın Esin.

    Curated by İpek Yeğinsü, the exhibition originates from the various meanings of the term PROFILER.

    Although the term PROFILER is used in a variety of contexts, it generally refers to the person mapping the portrait of an individual or a phenomenon, delineating its main framework and proposing strategies for process improvement. During a dynamic program analysis, a software developer becomes a PROFILER measuring the program’s memory capacity and speed, and defines as “profiling” the sum of all the optimization procedures he or she undertakes. On the other hand, the PROFILER who operates within a criminal context aims at estimating the demographic characteristics of a potential suspect for a specific crime; by identifying the personality traits that push him to commit a crime, he tries to predict his next move.

    The artist is also a PROFILER of his own internal dynamics as well as of the society he lives in. Via data based on observation, perception and intuition, he draws the portrait of the situation around him; reacting to the processes he thinks are dysfunctional, he generates proposals for alternatives. In each work of his, he pursues every trace of the reality that surrounds him and draws the “profile” of the next step the latter will evolve into. The works featured in the exhibition PROFILER were selected in a way to render this aspect of artistic practice particularly visible.

    The exhibition features Baysan Yüksel’s paintings questioning free will and dilemma; Eda Emirdağ’s video and photography works that become a mirror for the society; Erim Bikkul’s figures built with paper-cut layers; Genco Gülan’s ironic sculpture on the notion of power; Karbon’s site-specific installation interpreting the concept of portrait from the viewpoint of life-death dichotomy; Özge Yağcı’s assemblage examining society’s pressure on women; Saliha Yılmaz’s surreal portraits creating new identities;  and Taşkın Esin’s assembly visualizing the concept of accidental phenomena via the use of data.

    The exhibition will be on view between October 1 and 22 at GaleriBU, from 11 am to 6 pm every day except for Sundays and Mondays.

  • “Voyage”: Exhibition by Art50.net

    May 19-September 30, Avantgarde Collection, Yalıkavak Bodrum

    Ayna | Ayşegül Karakaş | Begüm Mütevellioğlu | Gözde Başkent | Haydar Akdağ | İpek Yeğinsü | Taşkın Esin

    Like last year, Art50.net welcomes the summer with an exciting group show. Kindly hosted by Avantgarde Collection Yalıkavak, the exhibition “Voyage” will be on view from May 19 to September 30.


    Taşkın Esin, Assembly, detail

    «Voyage» is a concept that indicates journey, relocation, departure for discovery and an excursion into memories and fantasies. It may involve an adventure beginning with maps and backpacks as well as an inner journey during a walk into the woods.
    Each artist in the «Voyage» exhibition approaches this concept from his or her own point of view. While Ayşegül Karakaş invents characters proceeding in uncanny landscapes, Ayna invites us to a nostalgic journey into the past. Begüm Mütevellioğlu’s compositions take the viewer into a universe of memories creating a meditative psychological state, and Gözde Başkent places her characters at the center of a natural cycle. Haydar Akdağ chases the artistic possibilities offered by form, color and texture while İpek Yeğinsü is after the elements moving in an urban context, and Taşkın Esin pursues the accidental phenomena’s role in his data-based paintings.
