BYOB (Bring Your Own Beamer)

September 4, 2015

Pera Museum’s Film and Video Programming in collaboration with Maybe Art Projects, presented BYOB (Bring Your Own Beamer), a pop-up experimental video exhibition. Since 2010, BYOB has been taking place in many different cities around the world, aiming to present a look into the audio-visual creative tendencies in moving images by up-and-coming artists. The artists participating in this event bring their own projectors and show their video works. BYOB’s second edition at Pera Museum aspires to embrace the lesser-known talents of the experimental and avant-garde based in Istanbul. Artists in this year's selection are: Zafer Akşit, Bahadır Arıcı, Nurhan Avcı, Eray Dinç, Lara Kamhi, Gizem Karakaş, Fikret Karaman, Onur Kemal Kösedağ, Nazlı Tuhera Moral, Ergin Soyal, Etem Şahin, Berkay Tuncay, Kubilay Ural, Müge Yıldız, Bahar Yürükoğlu and Wounded Wolf Press.

Memory Building Memories / Memory Room / Memento Mori

Memory Building Memories / Memory Room / Memento Mori

Each memory tells an intimate story; each collection presents us with the reality of containing an intimate story as well. The collection is akin to a whole in which many memories and stories of the artist, the viewer, and the collector are brought together. At the heart of a collection is memory, nurtured from the past and projecting into the future.
