Burn These Eyes Captain and Throw Them in The Sea

November 14, 2013 – February 8, 2014

The new exhibition at the progressive Rodeo gallery features artists whose work is aware of the conceptual traditions and processes of making art, and shows how new languages, new channels and new ways of looking at things can be created in this sphere. Works are for sale. Please enquire directly with the gallery.

A central focal point is the deconstruction of used materials. Works include San Francisco-based artist Ron Nagle’s ceramic sculptures which look like they are made from jelly and have come from another planet; American artist Andy Coolquitt who has constructed an installation made entirely from discarded materials he has collected over the years; and poetic drawings embellished with ropes and cosmetic products by the late Czech artist Běla Kolářová (1923–2010) from the 1970s and 1980s, which are being shown in Istanbul for the first time.

The other exhibiting artists are: Rey Akdoğan, Eloise Hawser, Tamara Henderson, Ann Cathrin November Høibo, Ian Law, Ken Okiishi, Colin Whitaker and Viola Yeşiltaç.
