Crystal Clear
Workshops with Artists

January 15 - February 25, 2021

Pera Museum Learning Programs organize online artist workshops for young and adults withinthe scope of the exhibition Crystal Clearbetween 15 January - 25 February 2021.

As part of Pera Genç, in the workshop titled “Stones of Oblivion: Changing Forms” given by Kıymet Daştan, we will create our own stones of oblivion by reflecting on how we preserve memory, how we destroy it and how we create it in daily life, using the stones that we collect on the river banks and coasts we visit or that we stumble upon in the city. We aim to give form to the layers of an abstract concept such as memory that permeates every corner of our daily lives, and to rethink our relationship with everyday objects and materials. 

As part of Pera Adult, in the “The Dictionary of Distance: Sewing Workshop” by Güneş Terkol we create a unique dictionary of distance that can demonstrate the pandemic-induced permeability we experience in our memory and perception of reality and imagination. In a workshop where distance-based fictional work will be created and interpreted and sewn on fabrics, we create motifs based on the words we have coined in this period when we experience a strong sense of distance and we sew colored patches made from pieces of fabric.

Crystal Clear

In collaboration with all the participating artists, Crystal Clear devises methods and tools for sustainable curating, going beyond just thinking about ecology or sustainability, but rather inventing and enacting principles allowing the reduction of the carbon footprint of exhibition making: radical limits on the shipping of objects, local collaborative production of exhibited work, creative recycling strategies, and extremely reduced travel for all the participants.

Nudes With Mirrors

Nudes With Mirrors

Although mythological themes are not commonly encountered in Turkish painting, it is possible to see variations of widespread themes such as the Venus at her Toilet. 

History of a Khanjar

History of a Khanjar

Henryk Weyssenhoff, author of landscapes, prints, and illustrations, devoted much of his creative energies to realistic vistas of Belorussia, Lithuania, and Samogitia. A descendant of an ancient noble family which moved east to the newly Polonised Inflanty in the 17th century, the young Henryk was raised to cherish Polish national traditions.

The Search for Form

The Search for Form

A series of small and rather similar nudes Bedri Rahmi Eyüboğlu and Eren Eyüboğlu produced in the early 1930s almost resemble a ‘visual conversation’ that focus on a pictorial search. It is also possible to find the visual reflections of this earlier search in the synthesis Bedri Rahmi Eyüboğlu reached with his stylistic abstractions in the 1950s.
