Vertigo

Murat Akagündüz

March 30, 2016 – May 15, 2016

ARTER, İstiklâl Caddesi No. 211, Tünel, Beyoğlu


This exhibition, one of three concurrent solo shows at ARTER, features all new works by the artist Murat Akagündüz.

Curated by Aslı Seven, the exhibition presents a series of white on white oil paintings depicting some of world’s highest mountain peaks as seen on Google Earth, and explores the transformation of human-nature relationship within the landscape tradition. How is the act of painting transformed when we rely upon the mediation of digital data to depict an actual physical landscape? In a satellite view of the earth, the paintings represent a vertical perspective; with the horizon nowhere to be found, our sense of being grounded is disrupted, and a sense of vertigo sets in.
