This collaborative exhibition by Hera Büyüktaşçıyan and TUNCA, ‘Because We are Here Where We Are Not’, at Sabanci University gallery inside the 1913 Greek Bank building Minerva Han, reveals their shared interest in place as a conveyor of memory. Although the two artists are collaborating for the first time there is a definite chemistry. They both use the door, both as architectural and symbolic element, using an approach that is visual yet conceptual at the same time. Büyüktaçıyan contours the doors inside the gallery space with blue, fluid-looking mosaics mimicking the mosaic border tiles on the building’s façade. These fluid, melting looking gates alter our perception of architecture and history as a phenomena fixed and invariable. TUNCA presents a tryptic of large charcoal drawings of a mysterious brick architecture in spherical form with no entry points. The walls without doors in these drawings, based on water reservoirs for the Birkenau camp near Auschwitz, instead, point out restriction and constraint. A simple yet deep presentation that seems to ponder: what if we could see beyond the visible?
