fragMENtaTION

I considered fragMENtaTION project as an alternative exhibition model. The concept “exhibition” which, in classic terms, develops depending on a specific space, an institution and production possibilities, can in the final analysis be defined as a possibility for a visual narration that discusses artistic production.While proceeding with various projects, I moved away from working with specific spaces; the artists I worked with were also in constant motion. The changes in life had a lot of impact on both their viewpoints and forms of production. There were many artists in my list that I wanted to work with. As much as I wanted to work with them, I also wished to get involved in different experiments. As I opened the pages of the Sanat Dünyamiz magazine where my articles have been published for over twenty years, I thought about a new exhibition model. The magazine’s pages designed by the artists themselves are original pieces; furthermore, they are freed of the dependency on the concepts of space and time. Each project is formed in collaboration with the artists and the team of Sanat Dünyamiz; thereby the magazine’s pages are turned into exhibition spaces where different visual experiments are manifested. Projects that the artists developed by using different techniques and narrative potentials, make references to the experimental quality of contemporary art via visual contents, new questions and new viewpoints. Each project that goes through the processes of detailed and specific interrogation, production and dialogue, undoubtedly opens the doors to a different outlook on the world. The fragMENtaTION project makesthe dialogue between the textual image and the visual image visible, by transporting the questions and the viewpoints that contemporary art develops independently from space and time.
