2. What’s On in Istanbul

By Insun Woo

Published on March 15, 2022  


Collection Exhibition: ThisPlay

Until 9 April, 2023

Arter, a contemporary art museum in Dolapdere, Istanbul, presents the group exhibition ThisPlay, curated by Emre Baykal. Drawn from the Arter Collection, the exhibition revolves around the concepts of childhood and play. It aims to explore the liberating aspect of play, its defiant capacity to suspend and reconstruct reality, and the ways it transcends the humdrum of daily life to create unique systems and structures of meaning of its own, within the context of artworks, and the experiences they offer. Approaching art both as a maker and breaker of play through concepts such as competition, tension, chance, imitation, ritual, magic, trance, and pleasure, ThisPlay opens up space for both adults and children to indulge in a play where there is no winner, or everyone wins.

Solo Exhibition: Candeğer Furtun

Until 17 April 2022

From the 1960s onwards, Candeğer Furtun has produced ceramic works informed by problematics relating to life, philosophy, history, society and politics, featuring a wholly original approach in terms of both form and material. The artist’s first retrospective exhibition, curated by Selen Ansen, at Arter brings together more than a hundred works reflecting her rich world of forms and textures, along with archival materials that closely document the research and production processes in her studio. The exhibited works manifest Furtun’s contributions to the art of ceramics – which went through a significant transformation during the 1960s – as an artist who involved natural processes in her work by liberating the soil and allowing for coincidences in her artistic practice.

Anna Laudel


February 10 – March 27, 2022

On view at Anna Laudel is Lal Batman’s solo exhibition Exposé. Exposé, which means “to exhibit and to reveal”, takes a closer look at how we reflect each other and ourselves. Curated by Assoc. Prof. Ebru Yetişkin, the exhibition includes a wide range of works, from oil paintings to digital illustration, from holograms to NFT and video art, produced by digital and plastic art materials. By means of artistic research, Exposé presents how digital platforms contribute to socio-cultural change.

As the concept of ‘Metaverse’ enters our lives, Batman explores how digital communication technologies are used in everyday life. Inspired by observations and questioning of contemporary visual culture, each selected work reflects our intertwined bodies, images and minds. At the same time, instead of breaking the spell of the glittering lives that are increasingly exhibited and exposed under the influence of digital culture, the artist connects with the erotic nature of today’s desires to expose, reveal, watch (and to be watched), follow (and to be followed), peek and (to be peeked), and adds her own interpretations to these phenomena.

Pilot Gallery

Bounding Box

March 12 - April 30, 2022

Pilot Gallery presents Hacer Kıroğlu and Egemen Tuncer’s duo exhibition Bounding Box. From video works to sculptures, objects to drawings, various mediums that are represented are on view for the first time in this exhibition. The works construct their context through the state of being an artist; studies the relation between the artist, the art spaces and institutions through various dynamics of contemporary art exhibitions. Dual relations incorporated within art production practices meditated through the artworks.

The bounding box is a term that is used to determine the object's exterior points. In the "planned drawing," which is also the basis of the academic drawing, the "bounding box," which is utilized in 3D modeling and is required for the precise placement of the object in its spatial reach, appears. The artists continue to discuss a gallery space through this title, which is evocative of Brian O'Doherty's cult book "Inside the White Cube." For the first time, artists working on this exhibition side by side uncover similarities and differences in their working habits and create works that highlight these disparities.

February 4 - March 13, 2022

Hosted at Sanatorium in Beyoğlu, OASIS was the first solo show of artist Christiane Peschek in Turkey. OASIS stands as a potential sanctuary at the end of the Anthropocene, a safe space where a nonbinary, value-free and inclusive corporeality is living. OASIS is a post-body spa, where self-care practices meet cyber-humanism, playfully stimulating awareness of expanded corporeality in the digital field.

In contrast to conventional bathing places that are temples of the flesh, OASIS is a place of constant transformation processes, innovation and adaptation: a treatment for the virtual augmentation of our bodies. OASIS is a poly-sensory installation where both, the physical body and the mind, can be prepared for the sensuality of virtuality. The spa becomes an experimental field of mystical otherness. Haptics, materiality, atmosphere, multi-sensuality and relationships to trans-corporeal realities in the installation affect the visitors and promise a regeneration from the solid physicality.
