Sculptures Come to Life

Pera Kids
Ages 4-6

Now it’s time to imagine that we are in the Pera Museum, and you are a priceless sculpture on display here. Sculptures do not move, do they? So you have to keep the same pose without moving at all. The museum’s security is about to patrol the museum, and the sculptures must be completely still when they are here. However, when the security guard gets tired and goes to take a nap, you can switch places and poses. However, you must stay still once again when the security guard comes back. If the guard notices that you have changed places, you might get carried back to your original position. If the guard spots someone moving, that player becomes the new guard in the next round, and the game continues with different sculptures.

Memory Building Memories / Memory Room / Memento Mori

Each memory tells an intimate story; each collection presents us with the reality of containing an intimate story as well. The collection is akin to a whole in which many memories and stories of the artist, the viewer, and the collector are brought together. At the heart of a collection is memory, nurtured from the past and projecting into the future.

A firm believer in the idea that a collection needs to be upheld at least by four generations and comparing this continuity to a relay race, Nahit Kabakcı began creating the Huma Kabakcı Collection from the 1980s onwards. Today, the collection can be considered one of the most important and outstanding examples among the rare, consciously created, and long-lasting ones of its kind in Turkey.
