- What’s On
Reverse Corner is a new multi-media installation by Turkish artist Işıl Eğrikavuk, winner of the 2012 Full Art Prize.
Conceived in response to the Gezi protests that erupted throughout Turkey from late May, the exhibition builds on the artist’s previous works that explore the swift and uncontrollable urban transformation of Istanbul. The exhibition is in fact a parallel event to the 13th Istanbul Biennial.
Reverse Corner takes its name from a soccer term that refers to an unexpected shot that tricks the goal keeper to protect one side of the goal when in fact the ball is aimed for the other side. Media coverage of the Gezi Park events tended to pit the protesters against the police, much like a competitive sport with opposing sides. Using this metaphor, Eğrikavuk questions this dichotomy and explores the boundaries between what is meant by ‘us’ and ‘them’.
