10th Terrace Exhibition: FROM ANOTHER HILL

Elgiz Museum supports the art of contemporary sculpture since 2011 with a series of annual terrace shows dedicated to contemporary sculptures only.

About

The 10th Terrace Exhibition titled From Another Hill is on view until November 2018 in the open air terrace space of the Elgiz Museum. The artists participated to the open call via the theme of Istanbul, and the proposals were evaluated by the Advisory Board.

Sculptors from different cities such as Kars, Isparta, Eskişehir, Ankara, İzmir and Istanbul took place, bringing a new perception to both locals and outsiders of Istanbul. Each perspective came together on ‘another hill’ of Istanbul; at the Elgiz Museum’s terrace.

The ambiguous borders of Istanbul, its rising skyscrapers and limiting personal spaces, immigrants, the jam and the ‘metropolitan comfort’ are interpreted by artists in a multi-dimensional manner; Istanbul is portrayed as a city where many roads come to an end whilst creating and possessing its own ways. As these roads are redrawn every day, lack of tranquility is transformed into a feeling of uneasiness. 

Artists correspondingly transpose ‘the effort to belong’ as they convey the (im)possibilities of this (be)longing. Istanbul’s both illusioned and familiar sides, the traces of histories in our collective memory are depicted despite the changes in the city of Istanbul.

Istanbul has been the subject of much poetry, music and was once described as the center of the world by its blessed history and texture, where you will encounter with destructive side of Istanbul and discover your own “lost trampled fantasies”.
