Cevdet Erek is presenting his new project at this 57th Venice Biennale for The Pavilion of Turkey. The show is titled “ÇIN”, which features a new site-specific work, though various media, by the artist and that will be developed during the process and be shaped together with the venue. As the artist stated : “I propose to imagine a scene together as an exercise: There is a fenced ruin in the distance with a guard inside of it who should not leave during the day. The guard, while walking in silence, notices a visitor who carefully peeks around and the concert of thousands of crickets thanks to the visitor”.
