Ayşe Erkmen: Intervals


Ayşe Erkmen installation

The Curve, in Barbican Centre London, until 5 January 2014
Turkish artist Ayşe Erkmen has produced an ambitious new work for the Barbican. From fairytale landscapes to realistic interiors and abstract designs, a series of scenic backdrops move up and down, dividing the gallery. The backdrops become performers in their own production, bringing the typically overshadowed painted scenery to the forefront. As a supplement to the exhibition, on 24 September in Frobisher Auditorium 1, the artist discusses the ideas of time, space, and context that underpin the exhibition, as well as her previous works.
