Shaken Image

Works from Hacettepe University Faculty of Fine Arts

June 6 - August 26, 2018

Since its inauguration, Pera Museum had been collaborating annually with national and international institutions of art and education to organize exhibitions supporting young artists. This year, the museum presented the show Shaken Image, selected works by graduate and master degrees from Hacettepe University’s Faculty of Fine Arts department. Curated by Dilek Karaaziz Şener, the exhibition inquired the conceptual layers behind the image and its relevance in the production process through works from a wide range of disciplines such as painting, sculpture, installation, video, print, graphic, and ceramics. The exhibited works not only reflected the current probes by young artists but also explore how different yet overlapping contexts like the body, society, memory, space, nature, and cultural norms relate to the image.

I walk over rocks hot as iron under the September sun. I can make out a few lines in the distance, and a few cracked rocks, but apart from those, not a single tree, not one plant. I have walked until I reached this hill, in the trail of the letter that hurled me once again to my home town...
