Taldans

Workshop - Performance

May 28, 2019

Pera Museum presents Movement of the Line / Line of the Movement, a workshop-performance program that will be held at the exhibition floor as part of the Out of Ink: Interpretations from Chinese Contemporary Art exhibit. The program includes Taldans (Mustafa Kaplan and Filiz Sızanlı), who invite the participants to two distinct workshop-performance experiences that use the pen, the paper, and the body as their main instruments. For the exhibition, Taldans adapted two segments from Ritual for a Sensitive Geography, their joint project with French choreographer Julie Nioche, transforming line and writing into movement, and exploring with participants the opportunities of building together and coexisting.

Set to take place on Tuesday, May 28, the workshop-performance Web will invite participants to draw a map of the associations of three words at the exhibition floor.

The workshop-performance event has a runtime of 40 minutes, during which the exhibition floors will be closed to visitors. Participation is limited to 35 people. Event tickets are sold at 10 TRY, and may be purchased via Biletix before the event or from Pera Museum reception on the event date.

Taldans’s workshop performances Web and On the Road feature sound design by Sair Sinan Kestelli and workshop support by Fırat Kuşçu.

From two portraits of children…

The Suna and İnan Kıraç Foundation’s Orientalist Painting Collection includes two children’s portraits that are often featured in exhibitions on the second floor of the Pera Museum. These portraits both date back to the early 20th century, and were made four years apart. One depicts Prince Abdürrahim Efendi, son of Sultan Abdulhamid II, while the figure portrayed on the other is Nazlı, the daughter of Osman Hamdi Bey.
