Curated by Aslı Seven, OMM – Odunpazarı Modern Museum’s newest exhibition, “Under Two Suns” is on display
Kicking off the new art season with a selection of works from the Erol Tabanca Collection, OMM – Odunpazarı Modern Museum’s newest exhibition “Under Two Suns” is open to visit. Curated by Aslı Seven, “Under Two Suns” offers a journey through refractions of light and shadows. As an exploration of mythological and speculative horizons opened up by the prospect of two suns in the sky. Showcasing works produced in a range of media, the selection shares a sensibility towards optical, thermal, metamorphic, and affective phenomena surrounding sunlight and its atmospheric refractions, exploring the profoundly solar, relational, and mutating nature of our being in the world.
Exploring the aesthetic possibilities surrounding mimicry as a biological and cultural impulse, the exhibition features artworks by 45 Turkish and international artists, “Under Two Suns” showcases an imaginative hypothesis and proposes the idea of two suns as a new way to look at works of art through the shifting perspective of an inverted relationship with the Sun in which the source of all light, life and wisdom becomes a potentially threatening force, a darker sun or too much of a sun.
Tied to the rotation of our planet and our bodies in relation to the sun, the exhibition follows its incremental, permeable relationship to sunlight and the environment through a threefold instalment. Taking its inspiration from the architecture of OMM, designed by the acclaimed Kengo Kuma and Associates, “Under Two Suns” can be visited until July 28, 2024.
