I Can Do This As Well/Bunu Ben De Yaparım

September 12, 2013 – September 30, 2013

C.A.M. Galeri, Çukurcuma Caddesi No. 38/A, Beyoğlu

I Can Do This As Well sounds like a phrase that would come out of a petulant child’s mouth and, in fact, curator Emre Zeytinoğlu says that the starting point for this exhibition was this idea of the ‘derogatory attitude of the user of this phrase towards a “thing”’.

Taking this idea further, the exhibition explores how the most interesting processes of change in art occurred in the wake of the use of this phrase – in other words, movements such as design, architecture, and even philosophy and politics, came out from a certain desire to give something legitimacy after someone proclaimed ‘I can do this as well’.

Interesting videos, striking paintings and unique photography series from Mehmet Ali Boran, Murat Germen, Aras Seddigh, Sevim Sancaktar, Fatih Tan and Burcu Yağcıoğlu make for a compelling exhibition that is very open to personal interpretation.
