“Minor Truths”, curated by Elif Kamışlı, brings together five artists who engage with the concept of time. The title of the show is taken from the novel "The Institute for the Readjustment of Clocks," by Ahmet Hamdi Tanpınar.
A main theme in “Minor Truths” is the attempt to capture the moment. By stopping time we are able to enjoy the event and its emotions without the threat of decay. The photographs of Selim Birsel, for example, depict a perfectly spinning top. Time appears to have stopped and in that moment the spinning top will neither lurch nor fall down. As the artist states, this is like being in limbo—between life and death—in a place where time doesn’t exist.
Minor Truths can be visited between September 6 - October 6 in the Egeran Galeri.
