In early cinema the colors were applied on to the already developed black&white film strip. The colors are meant to embellish the image or to add drama (for ex. the image turns red when there is a fire). However there is another dimension to the early color techniques; the colors are present as a chemical layer on the film surface. When they decay over time, new unexpected versions might arise.
Accompanied with the performance of silent movie musician Stephen Horne and presentation by Mariann Lewinsky, following films from Eye Filmmuseum’s collection will be screening:
La Caduta Di Troia
Mein Name Ist Spiesecke
Pera Museum, in collaboration with Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts (İKSV), is one of the main venues for this year’s 15th Istanbul Biennial from 16 September to 12 November 2017. Through the biennial, we will be sharing detailed information about the artists and the artworks.
The Suna and İnan Kıraç Foundation’s Orientalist Painting Collection includes two children’s portraits that are often featured in exhibitions on the second floor of the Pera Museum. These portraits both date back to the early 20th century, and were made four years apart. One depicts Prince Abdürrahim Efendi, son of Sultan Abdulhamid II, while the figure portrayed on the other is Nazlı, the daughter of Osman Hamdi Bey.
