A Salon exhibition held in the Grand Palais in Paris on May 1, 1906 showcased an Ottoman painting. This was Osman Hamdi Bey’s famous “Tortoise Trainer”.
The publication accompanying the exhibition includes the writings of the curators Serhan Ada and Simone Fattal, as well as a short text written by the artist Etel Adnan for the exhibition and an article titled About the End of the Ottoman Empire.
In this collage workshop led by artist Eda Gecikmez, we employ Etel Adnan’s abstract techniques to reinterpret a landscape in terms of its shapes and colors.
In the exhibition, we explore Etel Adnan’s original drawings of abstract landscapes and mountains that focus on the concepts of color, writing, memory and time as part of the artist’s naturalist interpretation of the physical world.
Inspired by Etel Adnan’s Leporellos, which feature art painted on accordion-folded notebooks, we create our own leporellos. We invite children and parents to design their own accordion-folded notebooks.
