About

Trained in architecture and sound design, Cevdet Erek (1974) is a visual artist and musician based in Istanbul. He is also the drummer in avant-garde rock band Nekropsi. Erek's artistic practice is based on the themes of sound, architecture, rhythm, measured time, dance music and site-specificity. Having developed ambitious new site responsive installations for dOCUMENTA 13, Kassel, (2012) and Kunsthalle Basel, (2012) Cevdet Erek will undertake his first solo project in the UK at Spike Island, Bristol in 2014. Erek's work combines video, sound and images, often in an attempt to alter the viewer's perception and experience of a given environment. He is particularly interested in the way we apprehend the world around us and organise our lives through measurements of space (metric system), time (calendar and clock) and music tempo (beats per minute). The artist conflates these seemingly objective systems with other apparently more subjective ones, such as the timeline of events or the changing rhythm in musical improvisations. Working with his own versions of rhythms and markers, Erek will create an immersive new installation for the gallery at Spike Island. He will bring into play his responses to the architecture of the gallery (the central atrium of a former factory), the sounds already present in the building and the wider context of the Bristol music scene.
