Which sun gazed down on your last dream?

Ergin Çavuşoğlu

March 10, 2016 – June 25, 2016

Rampa Istanbul, Şair Nedim Caddesi No 20, Kat -2, Akaretler, Beşiktaş


Ergin Çavuşoğlu’s third solo exhibition at Rampa is inspired by a (paraphrased) quote from Charles Baudelaire’s seminal work On Wine and Hashish: ‘Which sun gazed down on your last dream?’ The question refers to the ability of intoxication to render a person outside of time and memory; likewise, the show explores a kind of metaphoric inebriation from wondering and wandering subliminally about and in the trivialities of the world.

Çavuşoğlu has an interest in the idea of travel, or movement and migration – not just of people, but of things, objects, ideas. This multifaceted exhibition, which includes video, sculpture, painting and photography, explores spaces of temporality or placeless spaces as experienced in these various types of movement. For Çavuşoğlu, in-between spaces allow for possibilities, for thought.
