Tayfun Serttaş at Pilevneli Project

Pilevneli Project, Istanbul, hosts Tayfun Serttaş, who is one of the most prominent artists of his own generation. The project titled “BAZAN”, which was specially produced for Pilevneli Project, is the product of a one year long preparation process. “BAZAN” has a different position than the existent practices of the artist which have been followed by the public with great interest.

“BAZAN”, which is a lyrical anomaly often used by the authors that directed the development of Turkish Literature, refers to the whole project. In this specific project, the literary corpus is categorised and commonised through the coincidental dispersion of a single word among the authors coming from the same generation, then it is visualised on different scales by Serttaş. In this way, the invisible relationship between those “close-remote” disciplines are investigated.

Pilevneli Project—an unparalleled platform in Turkey—focuses on creating resources and added value for the Turkish art market.

Pilevneli Project aims to form a bridge between artists and art professionals by constructing itself as a project space. To serve this purpose, the primary function of Pilevneli Project is to set forth new artists fo the Turkish art world by introducing them to various art institutions—most importantly galleries—collectors, curators, and art press. Pilevneli Project is not an art gallery, but rather a formation, which serves galleries and other art institutions.
