Vertigo

Murat Akagündüz

March 30, 2016 – May 15, 2016

ARTER, Irmak Caddesi No: 13 Dolapdere, Beyoğlu


This exhibition, one of three concurrent solo shows at ARTER, features all new works by the artist Murat Akagündüz.

Curated by Aslı Seven, the exhibition presents a series of white on white oil paintings depicting some of world’s highest mountain peaks as seen on Google Earth, and explores the transformation of human-nature relationship within the landscape tradition. How is the act of painting transformed when we rely upon the mediation of digital data to depict an actual physical landscape? In a satellite view of the earth, the paintings represent a vertical perspective; with the horizon nowhere to be found, our sense of being grounded is disrupted, and a sense of vertigo sets in.
