- What’s On
The exhibition Fragments of a Hologram Rose, curated by Ludovic Bernhardt & Luz Blanco (Global)*Z, with participation of the artist collective Chim↑Pom and the artists Cari Gonzalez-Casanova, Erol Eskici, Luz Blanco, Sergen Şehi̇toğlu, Berkay Tuncay, Eric Arlix and Ludovic Bernhardt will be held at SANATORIUM between May 24 and June 29, 2019.
The short novel Fragments of a Hologram Rose, written in 1977 by William Gibson, is the starting point of this exhibition which brings together eight artists of different nationalities. It takes a personal look at this dislocated story where poetic hallucinations contaminate communication networks. The Turkish, French, Japanese and North American artists are positioning themselves in front of a world of machines where images, communications and stories intertwine permanently, changing our apprehension of reality. They freely interact with the complexity of the text and its many striking narrative fragments very close to the «cut-up» creative process experimented by Brion Gysin and William Burroughs in the sixties.
