ISTANBUL.- Elgiz Museum announces the 5th anniversary of the Terrace Exhibitions with a unique selection of works, titled ‘Homage to Masters of Sculpture’.

Since 2012, the terrace exhibitions hosted 186 artists within an open-air space of 1500 meters square, encompassing the mission of supporting and motivating young artists.

The Terrace Exhibitions have been held by the Elgiz Museum to improve and increase the visibility of sculpture as an art form, which needs strong support in terms of both space and production. The exhibition series enables and strengthens the communication between sculptors and the art enthusiasts.

In the 9th Terrace exhibit, 14 artists have been selected by the museum’s Sculpture Advisory Board comprised of Seyhun Topuz, Rahmi Aksungur, Nilüfer Ergin, Haşim Nur Gürel ve Can Elgiz. The Board evaluated the proposals from artists who participated in the previous terrace shows. The exhibition hosts works by; Arif Çekderi, Caner Şengünalp, Çağdaş Erçelik, Emre Özçaylan, Ergin Soyal, Ersin Uysal, Halil Daşkesen, Museum announces the 5th anniversary of the Terrace Exhibitions with a unique selection of works, titled ‘Homage to Masters of Sculpture’.

A Selection from the Collection:
Grey and Beige Portfolio

The Elgiz Museum also salutes the summer with a selection of 18 newly displayed works from the collection, focusing on sculpture works and installations. On view at the same time with the annual Terrace exhibition, this unique assembly of works aim to underline the turbulent times we are in with the beige contours of Kemal Onsoy’s renown oil paintings to this year’s much celebrated artist Erwin Wurm’s aluminum sculpture disguised in the form of a human-sculpture; alongside Stephan Balkenhol’s gigantic wood-carved ‘Big Man’ sculpture, silently greeting the deconstructed Erard Piano by H. N. Gurel, juxtaposed by a view from Xavier Veilhan’s almost-musical blurry image situated next to Alex Prager’s stunning photograph with no path to follow.
The notion of uncertainty and flux is evaluated through Chesterton’s depiction of the color grey.

Artists: Stephan Balkenhol, Ramazan Bayrakoğlu, Peter Bonde, Eric Fischl, Günther Förg, Haşim Nur Gürel, Seda Hepsev, Paul Hodgson, Ergin İnani, David LaChapelle, Matthew Monahan, Fabian Marcaccio, Mimo Palladino, Wolfgang Petrick, Alex Prager, Kemal Önsoy, Abdurrahman Öztoprak, Xavier Veilhan, Erwin Wurm, Erdoğan Zümrütoğlu

The exhibition can be seen until October 28, ’17.
