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.

Baby King

Baby King

1638, the year Louis XIV was born –his second name, Dieudonné, alluding to his God-given status– saw the diffusion of a cult of maternity encouraged by the very devout Anne of Austria, in thanks for the miracle by which she had given birth to an heir to the French throne. Simon François de Tours (1606-1671) painted the Queen in the guise of the Virgin Mary, and the young Louis XIV as the infant Jesus, in the allegorical portrait now in the Bishop’s Palace at Sens.

Souvenirs of the Future

Souvenirs of the Future

You try to remember the future. A bird painted on the ceramic panel in a historical palace has found its place on the wall. The tiles of a church and a mosque have been painted on canvas. The pattern of a centuries-old ceramic plate appears before you on a velvet curtain.
