BYOB (Bring Your Own Beamer)

September 27, 2014

Pera Museum presented “BYOB (Bring Your Own Beamer)”, a one-night exhibition hosting artists and their projectors. The artists participating in this event bring their own projectors and show their video works. Since 2010, BYOB (Bring Your Own Beamer) has been organized in many different cities around the world. Put together by Pera Museum’s Film and Video Program curator Fatma Çolakoğlu and project assistant Ulya Soley, the broad and diverse selection presents a look into the audio-visual creative tendencies in moving images by up-and-coming artists. Hence, the selection aspires to embrace the lesser-known gems of the experimental and avant-garde. On this evening these imaginative works collided into one another, joining together to beam an inspired, fresh bloom.

Artists: Yoel Meranda, Eytan İpeker, Volkan Şenozan, Serkan Ertekin, Deniz Tortum, Burak Çevik, Aylin Güngör, Can Eskinazi, Bengü Özakıncı, Serra Tansel.

This event was presented parallel to Moving Image İstanbul, which will feature a selection of international commercial galleries and non-profit institutions presenting single-channel videos, single-channel projections, video sculptures, and other larger video installations.

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
