Letters of the Body

Pera Kids
Ages 7-9

Play a music of your choosing, and find somewhere inside the house that you can move freely. If you are ready and full of energy, we will begin to imitate the words and figures in the graffiti on display in the “Language of the Wall” exhibit. If you were to spell using your body movements, how would you depict the letters? Let’s try and find out! Begin by spelling your name using body movements along with the music. You can use any pose or any part of the environment while forming the letters. You can lie down on the ground, stand up, or tiptoe; it’s all up to you. You can form the letters of your name and surname, or surprise your family members by spelling their names instead. You would not believe what you will be able to accomplish once you set your body free...

Artist Nicola Lorini in Conversation

Inspired by its Anatolian Weights and Measures Collection, Pera Museum presents a contemporary video installation titled For All the Time, for All the Sad Stones at the gallery that hosts the Collection. The installation by the artist Nicola Lorini takes its starting point from recent events, in particular the calculation of the hypothetical mass of the Internet and the weight lost by the model of the kilogram and its consequent redefinition, and traces a non-linear voyage through the Collection.

Sixty member states have voted for changing four out of seven basic units of measurement. The kilogram is among the modified. Before describing the key points, let us have a closer look into the kilogram and its history.
