Thresholds Between Spaces: What I See From My Window

Pera Adult

  • August 11, 2024 / 14:30

Can seemingly everyday and ordinary things find different meanings through our experience of them? Does the same landscape look different from “everyone's window”? Based on the conceptual structure of the PƎRⱯ Reverse, which re-functionalizes the existing from a different perspective, the workshop invites us to think about and design windows that contain the opposition of “inside” and “outside”. Starting from the image of the window with its metaphorical meanings both as an architectural hardware element and as a threshold between spaces, the participants paint what they see from outside and inside on the window forms they design using cardboard and tracing paper.

Instructor: Damla Yalçın
Capacity: 12 people
Duration: 90 minutes
Fee per workshop: 300 TL  

The event will take place at the Pera Museum (face-to-face).

Transition to Sculpture

Transition to Sculpture

If Manolo Valdés’s paintings convey a search for materiality, his sculpture does so even more. Today, sculpture has taken over most of his workspace, his time, and his efforts.
