The Stones Talk

Aslı Çavuşoğlu

November 15, 2013 – January 12, 2014

ARTER, İstiklâl Caddesi No. 211, Tünel, Beyoğlu

The latest exhibition of Turkish artist Aslı Çavuşoğlu explores the potential of forming narratives with archaeological and historical information, and telling stories through objects.

Curated by Özge Ersoy, the exhibition brings together 71 archaeological artefacts that the artist reconstructed using various materials. The archaeological artefacts selected for the exhibition were discovered at various excavation sites in Turkey, yet subjected to a classification system and deemed unworthy of exhibiting (often these artefacts are either kept in museum storages or forwarded to universities for scientific research). While producing copies of these artefacts, Çavuşoğlu used their original materials such as wood, bronze, glass, iron, mosaic or ceramic, and then reconstructed them using ceramic, rubber, epoxy, plexiglass, felt, volcanic rock, leather and foam.
