“A New Selection from the Elgiz Collection” Elgiz Museum, Istanbul

DATE 17 June – 1 November 2014

 “A New Selection from the Elgiz Collection” Elgiz Museum, Istanbul

The Elgiz Museum periodically presents a new selection from the Elgiz Collecton in the temporary exhibition area. This time, works by artists, such as, David LaChapelle, Alex Prager, David Salle, Eric Fischl, Gilbert & George and Guillermo Mora are on view. 
Instead of focusing on just one discipline, this selection offers viewers the chance to explore video, photography, painting, sculpture and installation. As you enter the museum, David LaChapelle’s photograph “Uma Thurman: Gossip” strikes the viewer with the photographer’s signature hyperrealist elements, this time Thurman’s crimson red lipstick and coloured eyes. 
In the museum's new selection, Oleg Dou's digital photograph titled “Goat (From the Cubs Series)” is a transformed image of a human face, manipulated with computer software to produce stylised features and airbrushed skin. Again, Dou is inspired by a 19th-century tradition of capturing child funeral portraits, for which the body would be dressed in costume and prepared in intricate detail. The artist is interested in producing images that are both alluring and unsettling. 
The selection also includes works by Turkish artists, such as, Şenol Yorozlu. Yorozlu’s “Blundered Positions I” & “Blundered Positions II” presents the visitor with new details to discover. Pieces by Turkish contemporary art masters Azade Köker and Volkan Diyaroğlu are also on display. 
In this new selection, works by the following artists are on view: Alex Prager, Alp Tamer Ulukılıç, Azade Köker, Bedri Baykam, Clara Montoya, Çağdaş Erçelik, Çerkez Karadağ, David LaChapelle, David Salle, Eric Fischl, Gilbert & George, Guillermo Mora, İbrahim Koç, İdil İlkin, Julian Opie, Kezban Arca Batıbeki, Liam Gillick, Lisa Ruyter, Luca Zampetti, Luis Vidal, Maren Krass, Mateo Maté, Matthew Monahan, Mustafa Karyağdı, Neriman Polat, Oleg Dou, Peter Bonde, Ray Harris, Sean Henry, Şenol Yorozlu, Tuncay Deniz and Volkan Diyaroğlu.
