Subject: "Construct"
The notion of incompleteness that is present inherently in the act of Construction pushes us to think more about a particular space, due to the fact that a complete building loses its narrative potential: There is no puzzle to solve anymore… Construction sites are like historical ruins; Paul Zucker asserts in his article ‘Ruins: An Aesthetic Hybrid’ that “ruins have held for a long time a unique position in the visual, emotional, and literary imagery of man. Devastated by time or willful destruction, incomplete as they are, they represent a combination of man-made forms and of organic nature.” Resting on this statement, the more incomplete the "Construct" is; the more organic life gets, the more surprises and the fewer boundaries we have: Hoping the flexibility within the incompleteness in the construction process will relax the completeness of the dogmatic type of mental construct…

Photographers in Galata
Curated by Engin Ozendes, the exhibition will include recently commissioned works all focusing on the subject of Galata Bridge by six Turkish photographers including Murat Germen.
Considered among the most outstanding and innovative names in Turkish photography, these six photographers, who all work with a strongly conceptual bias, have approached Galata and its neighborhoods from perspectives that are diametrically opposed to the usual photographic cliché. in the projects they have specially developed for this exhibition, not only have they aimed to reflect the historical significance of the area and its associations for Istanbul, but they have also sought to expose the impact of changing living conditions and the diversity of urban development on the area in an attempt to generate fresh understandings of Galata and its significance.
These works reveal the different ages of Galata, its multicultural past, architectural characteristics, and inimitable way of connecting East and West as a crossroads or junction between different urban realities.
These works range from photographs that compress different moments on Galata Bridge into a single frame, to collages that recreate its multicultural history through reference to both visual and literary materials; from wide, panoramic images running wall-to-wall, to installations that focus on different aspects of interior space.
