Group Show Featuring 10 International Artists Goes on Display in Turkey

ISTANBUL – A group exhibition featuring works by 10 well-known international contemporary artists has gone on display to mark the launch of a new exhibition space belonging to an Istanbul art gallery.

The Turkish Pilevneli art gallery opened its new 4,000 square meters (13,123 square feet) space in downtown Istanbul’s Mecidiyeköy neighborhood with “At the Factory: 10 Artists, 10 Individual Practices,” featuring a piece from Daniel Firman’s “Elephant Series,” a large elephant suspended precariously from the ceiling by its trunk rolled up around a piece of fabric.

“It suggests the confrontation of a dynamic principle and a static situation, a paradoxical condensing of powerful movement and body,” Firman said on his website.

Also displayed are Hans Op de Beeck’s eerie and haunting ashen sculptures – which are disturbingly life-like – that project a stillness and sense of quiet contemplation.

Tony Matelli’s work, brimming with humor and irony, sees classical sculptures broken on the floor or draped with banana skins, but perhaps his most quietly arresting piece is his “Weed #440” – a favorite of the artist himself – placing a lonely plant bursting through the space where the floor meets the gallery wall.

The exhibition as a whole gives a rounded view of each artist’s work and aesthetic thanks to the ample and stark spaces the new Pilevneli gallery boasts.

“At the Factory: 10 Artists, 10 Individual Practices” features works by Refik Anadol, Hans Op de Beeck, Daniel Firman, Arik Levy, Tony Matelli, Ida Tursic & Wilfried Mille, Youssef Nabil, Sener Özmen, Jean Pigozzi and Erdogan Zümrütoglu.

The exhibition runs until Jan. 27.
