In Situ, AslieMk

Performance

March 31 - April 2 2017

As part of Pera Museum’s performance project Look Again, the artist duo AslieMk is presented a performance entitled In Situ, based on the exhibition Coffee Break: The Adventure of Coffee in Kütahya Tiles and Ceramics. The performance aimed to turn the exhibition space into an open and functioning laboratory, taking visitors beyond a one-way visual communication in relation to the works at the museum. The performance is based on re-creating works which can be touched and sensed once again.
