Don’t Forget to Remember

Volkan Aslan

May 2, 2013 – August 11, 2013

ARTER, İstiklâl Caddesi No. 211, Tünel, Beyoğlu

Young Ankara-born artist Volkan Aslan presents a solo exhibition focusing on the subjective perception of time, and how the linear form of time is interrupted through the act of ‘remembering’ and ‘forgetting’.

In a fairly large installation consisting of seven pieces, Aslan uses the days of the week as the backbone of the exhibition. He connects each day to his own personal experiences and perceptions by associating them with various objects and templates (such as a doll with a porcelain cat’s head to represent the state of fragility he feels on Sunday or the rather unconventional family portrait taken on Saturday). By doing this, he is able to infuse his own personal rhythm and sense of time into days of the week.
