Adaptation – Cinefication

Ergin Çavuşoğlu

March 1, 2014 – April 5, 2014

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

The latest exhibition from the Turkish artist Ergin Çavuşoğlu examines the artist’s engagement with painting in its classical and contemporary guises, and juxtaposes them with his better-known film installations. Çavuşoğlu thus retraces recurring preoccupations in his practice, showing his older works in a new context.

The wider concept refers directly to the ‘The Soviet project of “cinefication” that represents the most grandiose scheme of film distribution, exhibition and reception that the world has known to date’, as described by Thomas Lahusen. Çavuşoğlu borrows this framework to comment on the current globalised system of ‘cinefication’ of the arts.
