15 APRİL - 30 APRİL

PILOT Gallery is hosting the first physical NFT exhibition in the gallery between April 15th and 30th. The exhibition "Brave New World" features NFT works in 3d/computer-based animation/video format by five Turkish artists: Yasin Arıbuğa, 1998arthur, Buğra Bilgen, İrem Tok, and Egemen Tuncer. Each artist's works for the exhibition are both a reflection of their individual artistic approach and a roadmap for understanding the world of web 3.0. The "Brave New World" exhibition, which is part of SENKRON and will be held at PILOT Gallery in collaboration with Carny.io, will be open to the public through April 30, 2022.

 

"Brave New World," PILOT Gallery's first physical NFT exhibition, explores the many realities of the world through the eyes of five artists. Digitally created and distributed art is progressively making its way into actual gallery spaces.

 

"Dot Cloud Taksim," a work by Egemen Tuncer, merges over 1500 pictures taken on various days in Istanbul's most famous square, Taksim Square, using dotting technique. The perspective under discussion gestures at Peyami Safa's A Novel of Hesitation while following the remains of the square with its monumental structures. While the method neglects moving objects in the square, structures such as buildings, statues, and staircases appear in the 3D model when the point set is applied. The square's building facades alter the ambiance by bringing the viewer's attention to the monumental/iconic structures.

 

"Surprise!" and "Dopamine Tower," by Buğra Bilgen, address the consumer's relationship with fast-moving consumables like Kinder Surprise and Coca-Cola and question its space and innocence through multiple analogies. While Bilgen's explosives resemble a massive Kinder Surprise avalanche descending on a child, Coca-Cola’s "Dopamine Tower," which is connected to every home and emits an unknown "light," resembles neurons delivering dopamine to the brain.

 

İrem Tok’s NFTs guest her familiar characters that confront diverse natural forces, and highlight their face-off with the inevitable. One trying to resurface from the depths of the sea, the other handling the fire that parallels the volcano at the back, demonstrating the battle of wills between the almighty powers and the mere human. 

 

1998arthur’s “Deformity” finds itself squished between the different realities, spaces, and times. Like Alice who is looking Through the Looking Glass, the doll proceeds to go on an astral adventure where its face stays constant through the passing sceneries behind, although floating and fluctuating.

 

Yasin Arıbuğa’s work resembles a retrospective of the artist's own digitally made world. The viewer watches the daily lives of this planet full of dizzying repetitions while seeing what Arıbuğa's "Little People" character is doing in their fictitious homeland.

 

Organized for the second time this year with exhibitions and events held simultaneously across Turkey, SENKRON’s focus is on video art. It is a promising event in its field, with the cooperation of art institutions and organizations from many cities of Turkey, especially Istanbul. In addition, it also includes seminars that center on the works and research produced in video art. 

 

 

“Brave New World” can be seen in Pilot and Carny.io as part of SENKRON Simultaneous Video Exhibitions!
