14 Jan 201925 Mar 2019

The first exhibition in The United States of artist Banu Cennetoğlu brings together for the first time a selection of works investigating the gathering, presentation, circulation, and residue of information, data, and images. Her cross-disciplinary practice, in fact, aims to highlight how individual and collective narratives, histories and memories are created, starting from large bodies of available information.

The exhibition features the moving image work “1 January 1970 – 21 March 2018 · H O W B E I T · Guilty feet have got no rhythm · Keçiboynuzu · AS IS · MurMur · I measure every grief I meet · Taq u Raq · A piercing Comfort it affords · Stitch · Made in Fall · Yes. But. We had a golden heart. · One day soon I’m gonna tell the moon about the crying game” (2018), which includes the totality of the artist’s work, chronologically ordered, from June 10, 2006 to March 21, 2018. The piece consists of 128 hours and 22 minutes of still images and videos, an introspective stream of contents extracted from the artist’s personal life.

Among the other works on view, also Cennetoğlu’s project based on newspapers, made of 142 volumes, namely compilations of all the newspapers published in a country in a single day. Gathered together for the first time, the volumes show how information are disseminated and mediated in different societies.
