Curator: Ceren Erdem
Dirimart is pleased to host the group exhibition titled Ad Infinitum. Opening its doors on September 9, the exhibition gathers the works of Ayşe Erkmen, Lucia Koch, Alicja Kwade, Sarah Morris, Sarkis, Taldans, Nasan Tur, Ebru Uygun, and Jorinde Voigt under the curatorship of Ceren Erdem. Taking its title from the Latin expression referring to infinite repetition, the exhibition deals with continuity via rhythm. The patterns we feel, we know, we are taught, from the breathing of organic and inorganic matters to the spinning of their atomic particles, from heart beat to cosmic motions, are combined polyphonically, becoming systems that construct reality and simulacra. Setting off from this notion, with Ad Infinitum, the gallery is imagined as a new organism in which various rhythms pulse together, whose image becomes clear for a while. The routine cycle of the gallery space is intervened by site-specific installations, while city, architecture, language, and art are fragmented into rhythmic units, inviting the viewer to reflect within this system on human interactions with his/her environment, the cosmos and ways of perceiving it.
