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.

In the works of western painters, we encounter mosques as the primary architectural elements that reflect the identity of the city of Istanbul. Often we can recognize the depicted landscape as Istanbul simply from the mosques.

From Cypresses to Turkish Landscapes

From Cypresses to Turkish Landscapes

Among the most interesting themes in the oeuvre of Prassinos are cypresses, trees, and Turkish landscapes. The cypress woods in Üsküdar he saw every time he stepped out on the terrace of their house in İstanbul or the trees in Petits Champs must have been strong images of childhood for Prassinos.
