Minor Vibrations on Earth
October 7 - November 18, 2023
The exhibition takes its name from a moment Burçak Bingöl experienced, when the building of Ankara State Conservatory, where the artist graduated, was demolished by a bulldozer, and the machinery struck the ground to clear the debris. In this sense, Minor Vibrations on Earth focuses on individual and societal losses and transformations through the disappearance of the building where Bingöl spent her childhood and youth.
In March 2022, the artist, with the support of SAHA, spent a month at Tate St. Ives Porthmeor Studios, where she had the opportunity to study the Bernard Leach Ceramic Workshop, Barbara Hepworth Sculpture Garden, and the modernist artistic heritage of the Penwith Peninsula in Cornwall. She later incorporated this visit into an exhibition in her studio in Galata, Istanbul, where she combined ceramic materials and methods with the history of modernism, turning remembrance, forgetting, and change into a visual exploration.
