You Are My Sister is Atlas’ video visualization of the song of the same name by the acclaimed Antony & the Johnsons. Antony’s haunting anthem is paired with Atlas’ processed images of thirteen “NYC Beauties,” whose close-up portraits turn in hypnotic motion. These images were originally processed and projected live by Atlas for the performance piece Turning, a collaboration with Antony & the Johnsons that merged the artists’ distinctive and dramatic styles.
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 exhibition “Look At Me! Portraits and Other Fictions from the ”la Caixa” Contemporary Art Collection” examined portraiture, one of the oldest artistic genres, through a significant number of works of our times. Paintings, photographs, sculptures and videos shaped a labyrinth of gazes that invite spectators to reflect themselves in the social mirror of portraits.
