Interfacegallery, a communication project of the alternative art and culture platform HAYAKA ARTI which aims to “provide free circulation of art between the virtual and physical world”, is opening its second exhibition on April, 18th in Tophane.
Global Village by Yeşim Ağaoğlu. Employing a variety of medium, Yeşim Ağaoğlu gives us a poetic take on the ordinary made extraordinary
The concept “Interface” and the discussion- encounter platform it has introduced over the web, is for the second time carried into the physical space of a gallery to reflect on the existence of art production within virtual and physical spheres. Invited curator Deniz Erbaş has asked all artists included in her selection from over 300 profiles present on the web platform interfacegallery.com, to propose artworks talking back to the conceptual framework of “bio-power”.
Thus body and life that we are frequently forced to witness to full extent in all aspects through media and communication channels or political agendas, long fallen within the interest of power, have constituted the main theme of this exhibition. These works, disintegrating the body together with its living space and then rejoining the two by means of techniques such as collage, painting, photography and so on, while presenting fictions as to the existence of body within private, public and political realms, also manage to make room for reflection on the concept of bio-power. Social stereotypes such as sexual identity, womanhood, marriage, professional life, career and family, modes and potentials of the body turning into an object of politics and the cycle of life, the relationship between power and body are among the subjects of artists who participate in this exhibition.
