CURATOR: DR. NECMİ SÖNMEZ
Borusan Contemporary will greet the new season with Bitter Medicine #02, presented by the artist duo :mentalKLINIK as a prescription for the art world pushed to make drastic changes under the circumstances created by the COVID-19 pandemic. The exhibition includes the installation Puff Out, installed in the main gallery space of the Haunted Mansion, and streamed live 24/7 through Borusan Contemporary’s website and social media channels. As the Haunted Mansion will be closed for visits for a while due to the public health precautions, this performative installation will be on view for art viewers around the world, transformed into a virtual, choreographic video narrative using moving camera systems. Curated by Dr. Necmi Sönmez, the exhibition will be streamed between September 17, 2020, and January 31, 2021 through Borusan Contemporary’s website and social media accounts as well as the exhibition will be broadcasted on the screen installed in the window of Borusan Music House on Istiklal Avenue, 24/7.
