Summmer '17

Pera Education Workshop Exhibition

August 1 - September 17, 2017

Pera Museum’s Summmer '17 exhibition brought together the products of the creative world of children and teams who participated in the summer workshops inspired by the Doublethink: Double vision and José Sancho exhibitions. Including the works of three separate age groups (4-6, 7-12, and 13-17), the exhibition added its own color to Pera Education Workshop from August 1 to September 17.

The Summmer '17 exhibition included three-dimensional animal and aquarium designs made using “magic putty” and paper plates, and drawings made using crayons, ink, and finger paint at the workshops for the 4-6 age group. The works created at the workshop designed especially for the 7-12 age group included fish forms made by shaping wire, wind chimes made with soda bottle caps, and designs for clocks, business cards, comics, and book covers, made using a variety of material. The oversized text created by printing letters on sheets of paper at the workshop for the 13-17 age group directed by Hera Büyüktaşçıyan as part of the summer workshops was one of the outstanding works of the exhibition.

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.

This is one of Stanisław Chlebowski’s larger canvasses dealing with themes other than battles; only Ottoman Life at the Sweet Waters now at the Istanbul Military Museum can compare with it in size.

Medicinal Herbs in Byzantium

Medicinal Herbs in Byzantium

Knowledge of plants and the practice of healing are closely entwined. The toxic or hallucinogenic nature of some roots, and the dangers associated with picking them, conferred a mythical or magical character and power.
