Japan Media Arts Festival in İstanbul

August 6 - October 3, 2010

Japan Media Arts Festival, established in 1997, is a unique and original festival from Japan, which includes different categories such as Art, Entertainment, Animation and Manga. The Festival's main mission is to provide opportunities by bringing new works of excellence into the field of the media arts, fostering and inspiring the process of creativity. Japan Media Arts Festival exhibition organized in İstanbul for the first time at Pera Museum focused on two specific aspects of media arts: the Creative Mind and the Narrative Mind. The exhibition explored these two aspects through award-winning works from past Japan Media Arts Festival exhibitions as well as more recent works. Pera Museum, celebrating its fifth year, has through its exceptional exhibitions since its founding, cherished and embraced young artists' works and the different mediums of art. With this exhibition, the Museum brought together creative works by Japanese artists that fuse technology and expression in the most extraordinary styles. The exhibition was complemented with artist presentations, panel discussions and film screenings.

From Cypresses to Turkish Landscapes

Among the most interesting themes in the oeuvre of Prassinos are cypresses, trees, and Turkish landscapes. The cypress woods in Üsküdar he saw every time he stepped out on the terrace of their house in İstanbul or the trees in Petits Champs must have been strong images of childhood for Prassinos.
