Özlem Günyol in “Lines of Passage” at Municipality of Mytilene Art Gallery
Opening: September 30, 2016, 8.00pm
Lines of Passage (in medias res) endeavours to demonstrate a variety of connections among narratives of memory and expressions of differing intensities and (stylistic) approaches through artworks selected from the permanent collection of the Elgiz Museum in Istanbul. Lines of Passage (in medias res), curated by Başak Senova, forms a constellation reflecting on the trajectories of memory and perception. Within the exhibition, potential encounters between the selected artworks and spaces designate an ever-changing dynamic which is based on personal narratives, consciousness, psychological and cognitive recognitions. The exhibition suggests various paths of understanding through its scenography and potential dialogues of historically and politically charged geographies. It is nurtured by a selection of core works encompassing a cross section of narratives. Each work in the exhibition connects to another with non-linear narratives employing the in medias res either through content-based or form-based links.
Lines of Passage (in medias res) winds through the Halim Bey Mansion and presents artworks in various media ranging from paintings to sculptures, from installations to objects, from photographs to films and videos by prominent artists including Pınar Yolaҫan, Oleg Dou, Cindy Sherman, Azade Köker, Bedri Baykam, Bengü Karaduman, Ferhat Özgür, Gilbert & George, Hale Tenger, Tracey Emin, Louise Bourgeois, Mateo Mate, Burak Delier, Gülsün Karamustafa, İhsan Oturmak, Kendell Geers, Komet, Nan Goldin, Nilbar Güreş, Özlem Günyol, Rebecca Horn, Tomur Atagök, Veljko Zejak, Benji Boyadgian and Hera Büyüktaşcıyan.
