"Kapalıyız" Sergisi, 17 Aralık - 17 Ocak 2010, Galeri Kara, Ankara

































Fırat Engin

" KAPALIYIZ "
17 Aralık 2010 - 17 Ocak 2011
Kapalıyız sergisi üzerine;Kapalı sözcüğü anlam olarak; açık karşıtı, geçilmez durumda olan, çalışma süresi sona ermiş, müphem, bulutlu, karanlık, gizli, saklı, içe dönük, dış çevreyle ilişkisi olmayan olarak dilimizde tanımlanır. "Kapalıyız" başlıklı sergide, bu anlamlara karşılık gelen bir tür içe dönüş haline vurgu yapmakla birlikte, bu kavram altında birleşen sanatçıların, toplum karşısında "dışlanan" sanatçının yalnızlaşma süreçlerini kapsamaktadır.
Özellikle Türkiye gibi coğrafyalarda, içe dönüş - kapalı olma hali tüm şiddetiyle yaşanmakta, günümüzde sanat - sanatçı tüm uğraşılarına rağmen iletişimsiz kalmaktadır. Topluma nüfus etme eğilimleri her zaman bir tür kapanışla sonlanmakta sanat ve sanatçının bilinçle dışa açılma hali anlamsız ve değersiz kalmaktadır. Bu bağlam üzerinden kurgulanan "kapalıyız" sergisi açık karşıtı olan kapalılığı kabullenme durumu değil, tam tersine bir tür direniş özelliği taşımaktadır. Bu direniş; dış çevre ile ilişkisi olsun ya da olmasın, bulutlu ve karanlık bir kapalılık halinin, gizli saklı müphem bir durumun ötesine geçerek bir tür içe dönüş refleksi ile kendi başına varlığını temsil etme direncini göstermektedir.

The First Biennial Of Oran, 27- 29 of november 2010, Algeria

Biennale d’Oran (Algeria)
27, 28, 29 November 2010

La première édition de la biennale d’art contemporain aura lieu du 27 au 29 novembre 2010 à
Oran, dans une cité en pleine expansion.
La biennale est l’occasion d’une exposition unique en son genre, présentant les oeuvres
d’artistes contemporains internationaux.
C’est une démarche culturelle et citoyenne car fédérée par l’échange humain et le partage.
Elle s’inscrit dans un triangle englobant le Musée des Beaux Arts Ahmed Zabana, le Palais de
la Culture et la Cathédrale/Bibliothèque d’Oran.
Initiée par Ali Chaouch et assisté par l’artiste et curateur oranais Sadek Rahim, la biennale
rend également compte du travail des artistes locaux qui souvent manquent d’espaces et de
structures pour montrer leurs oeuvres.

Selected Artists: Carolina Ariza, Sinasi Gunès, Mohammed Mussalam, Elisabeth Monian, Larissa sansour, Hugo Verlinde

Agnieszka Pokrywka (Poljska), "Koniec/The End"
"The End“ („Kraj“) je inspirisan delom „Klanica-Pet“ Kurt-a Vonnegut-a. Glavni lik knjige, zahvaljući svojim specijalnim sposobnostima, gleda dokumentarac o II svetskom ratu unazad. Citati koji opisuju šta je video posmatrajući ovaj TV program je scenario za video „The End“.

Henry Gwiazda (SAD), "On the roof"
Ovaj video govori o koreografiji u realnom vremenu, o svemu u pokretu i interakciji kako bi se stvorila lepota. Svaka mala, koreografska scena može biti viđena zasebno i kao takva ima drugačije značenje.

Paul O’Donoghue aka Ocusion (Irska), "Chasing Waves"
Metaforička potraga za mestom spokoja, oslobođeni od buke savremenog života. Posmatranje elektronske verzije zapljuskivanja stvorenog talasima kao na morskoj obali, stalno menjajući se, ali ipak uvek isti.

Jen-Kuang Chang (Tajvan/SAD), "Drishti III"
„Drishti III“ je termin koji opisuje vizije jednog iskustva tokom meditativnog stanja. Oboje, kompjuterski generisani i semplovani zvukovi inkorporirani su da bi se dobili raznoliki sonični pejzaži koji se poklapaju sa vividnim, ali delikatnim vizuelizacijama.

Russell Chartier u saradnji sa kompozitorom Paul Botelho (SAD), "Confined"
Ovim radom se preispituje smisao ograničenosti koju mnogi ljudi osećaju živeći u velikim gradovima uprkos tome što su okruženi ljudima. Rad je izveden metodom sinhroniciteta: Botelho i Chartier nisu znali šta za rad onog drugog, već su, u finalnom produktu, spojili dva individualna rada.

Sinasi Gunes (Turska), "Batumi"
Umetnik se bavi onim što ga okružuje koristeći video kao dokument stvarnosti, istovremeno predstavljajući svoju kulturu na veoma interesantan način.

Robert Ladislas Derr (SAD), "Intellectual Economy"
Ovim radom se pokazuje kako umetnik udara glavom o zid sve dok zid ne pukne. Drugim rečima, umetnički produkt uzima formu ilustracije konstrukcije i dekonstrukcije umetničkog procesa. Rušenje zida označava se da je sam umetnički akt skoro završen.

"Video' Appart" Dubai Uluslararası Video Art Bienali, 10-28 Mart 2010






















Video’Appart Paris/Dubai
Video’Appart Paris/Dubai is a city-wide event taking place in the hearts of Paris and Dubai concurrently from 10 to 28 March 2010. In Dubai, videos artworks by international artists participating in the Paris exhibition will be showcased in galleries as well as in public and private spaces including cultural centers and collectors’ apartments. In exchange, local and regional artists, as well as artists living, working and represented by galleries in Dubai will be showcased in Paris.

Video’Appart Dubai is the first biennial in the region dedicated to the promotion and exchange of international and local video art and artists. Initiated and founded by Indira Tatiana Cruz, a renowned video artist and curator, Video’Appart is in its 3rd edition in Paris.
Video’Appart Dubai is curated by Mamia Bretesche.

"Video' Appart" Dubai
Uluslararası Video Art Bienali

“Video' appart" Paris/Dubai Video Art Bienali, 10-28 mart 2010 tarihleri arasında eş zamanlı olarak Dubai ve Paris’in kalbinde şehir çapında bir etkinlik olarak düzenleniyor. Dubai de, Paris sergisine katılan uluslararası sanatçıların video çalışmaları, koleksiyoncuların dairelerinde ve kültür merkezlerini içeren özel mekanlar ile kamusala açık mekanların yanında galerilerde de gösterilecek. Karşılığında yaşayan sanatçıların yanında yerel ve bölgesel sanatçıların çalışmaları Dubai’de galeriler tarafından presente edilecek.

“Video' appart" Dubai, bölgede düzenlenen ilk bienaldir. Yerel ve uluslararası video art’lar ve sanatçıların karşılıklı olarak alış verişte bulunması ve tanıtılmasına adanmıştır. Indira Tatiana Cruz tarafından kurulmuş ve yürütülmektedir. Kendisi aynı zamanda video sanatçısı ve küratördür. Video apart onun Pariste 3. organizasyonudur. Video’Appart Dubai’nin küratörü ise Mamia Bretesche’dir.

Bienale Şinasi Güneş “Anadolu” başlıklı video art çalışması ile iştirak ediyor. Bu çalışmada “örtünme” “örtme” eylemi kişiselleştirmeden çıkarılmakta. Geçmişin kültürel katmanları Anadolu çeşitliliği kadar zengin değildir. Görünen örtünme modellemeleri, sadece bir jesti imler. Oysa ardındaki farklı sosyal roller bu çalışmayı “feminen” noktada sorgular. Anadolu ile ortaya çıkarılan video art, kendi kültürümüz açısından bir zenginlik gibi görünse de göndermeleri olan bir “tabu”yu, bir “mahremi” de beraberinde getirir.

Sosyal performansta ortaya çıkan kadınsal rol, belirli karelerde ortaya konan; “çalışan kadın”, “evdeki kadın”, “kocası yanındaki kadın” yöresel örtünme piskolojisini de ortaya çıkarır. Söz konusu tavır, beraberinde sosyal düğümlenmeyi değil bir kültür nesnesi haline getirilmiş “kadın”ı özgürleştirmeyi de sorgular niteliktedir..

Anadolu güncel olduğu kadar, pre/post argümanlarla geleneğin çeşitliliği üstüne görsel bir şölendir.

Bienale Katılan Sanatçılar:Alexandra Loewe, Ammar Al Beik, An Lan, Barbara Noiret, Barry Anderson, Brooke White, Carolina Ariza, Delphine Kreuter, Elizabeth Monoian, Farida Hamak, Florence Girardeau, Hugo Verlinde, Jaanika Peerna, José man Lius, Kai-Duc Luong, Khalil M.

3 Mart /3 Nisan 2010

İstanbul 2010 Kültür Başkenti etkinlikleri kapsamında, Taşınabilir Sanat Projesi içinde yer alan “Çok Güzel” kavramlı çağdaş sanat sergisi Büyükçekmece Belediyesi işbirliğiyle Büyükçekmece’deki tarihi Kervansaray’da gerçekleşiyor.


Küratörlüğünü Fatih Balcı’nın yaptığı sergiye 15 sanatçı katılıyor. Sergide yer alan sanatçılar Coşkun Sami, Denizhan Özer, Fatih Balcı, Gül Ilgaz, Güler Güngör, Hülya Küpçüoğlu, Kurucu Koçanoğlu, Maria Sezer, Mehmet Kavukçu, Selahattin yıldırım, Serpil Kapar, Seyhan Boztepe, Sibel Balcı, Şakir Gökçebağ, Şinasi Güneş.
Sergide video, video yerleştirme, dijital baskı, yerleştirme, resim gibi değişik disiplindeki çağdaş sanat ürünleri bir araya geliyor.


Küratör Fatih Balcı sergi kavramı ortaya koyarken, Taşınabilir Sanat Projesi üst çerçevesinin şehrin merkezinde yoğunlaşan çağdaş sanat ürünlerini periferiye kaydırmak olduğu fikrinden yola çıktığını ve bunun için “Çok Güzel” olarak belirlenen kavramın sanat-toplum diyalektiğindeki hasarlı ilişkinin gözden geçirilmesi amacına hizmet ettiğini söylüyor. Küratör güzelliğin sanatsal alandan değişik nedenlerle sürüldüğünü, ama güzelliğin ortadan kalkmasının sanat toplum ilişkisindeki kopuşa da neden olduğunu dile getirerek; amacımız güzelliği geri çağırmaktır diyor.
3 Martta açılacak olan sergi bir ay boyunca izleyiciyle buluşacaktır.

” Time is love. Video, a media of our time.Question what would make that a representation takes place: body, identity, membership, rise, relationship to the other one…Offer a possibility of transcendence by the aesthetic experience.Move closer on the form and the theme artists’works of different generations.Cross variable temporality.Concern a glance the familiar and the unknown. Go out of the ordinary to stay there better.Invite, seduce, contaminate, modify the opinion, create a nearness.Sow a grain of love in a universe of extreme dehumanized dependence.Event of audiovisual exploration, Time is Love transgresses boundaries by giving keys to reach video art in a friendly and playful spirit. ”

TORNAVIDEO/ Video-Art Etkinliği _16 - 22 Ocak 2010 - Ankara



























TORNAVIDEO*
World is changing...
Art is changing
So is Ankara...

Thanks to globalization, technology, informatics and the internet, we are close to every corner of the world through just a “click”. The borders are disappearing and the area is expanding. Apart from the artistic dimension of this situation, when we turn back to our life, it is not that easy and colourful in fact, especially for the ones living in big cities and metropolises. We waste our time running from one place to another because of some reasons such as work, school, shopping, social activities and so forth. In addition to affecting our life style, the conditions of this era and its heady speed naturally affect the scope of the current art and its application techniques as well.

The fact that technology, informatics and the Internet is constantly renewing and getting more widespread has also affected the techniques used in art. Thus, multimedia’ has become apparent in the production of art. Art works produced by using computer programmes like Photoshop, digital press on canvas or on different materials, digital pictures, e-mail, video and audio recordings, advertisement ( display poster, billboard, TV, etc.) are among the most widely used practice and presentation techniques. Besides, an interactive expansion via technology and the Internet has had a place in art practices. The aim is to make the audience actively participate in the process of art production by using internet or sometimes by live performances or such activities. By this way, the borders between artists and the audience will be replaced by interaction.

Different from the traditional understanding, presentation and exhibition are not restricted to the galleries any more. All indoor buildings and also outer space like streets, in other words every place which belongs to the public space, is now used for exhibition. This is because in the 21st century, most of us have neither time to spend years in front of a canvas for a painting, nor time to go to a gallery and see an exhibition

Due to the reasons discussed in detail so far, bars/ cafes and such places are among the most convenient places for exhibitions. Among these places, the most convenient one is undoubtedly the “Tamirhane (repair-shop)”. (We are getting tired at school, at work, on streets, we are getting exhausted. Each of us is like a machine; we need a repair-shop/ TAMİRHANE). As for the Tamirhane, it needs an activity that will expand its horizon. It needs – ‘TORNAVIDEO’.

With the Tornavideo activity, it is aimed to bring every sector together whether they are interested in art or not by attracting attention to the video art which is the focus of the contemporary art and also to the exhibitions in public space. By doing this, it is targeted that contemporary art practices will become more popularized and contribute to contemporary art practisers by creating an alternative space to exhibit their work. Besides, our all expectation is to get rid of the prostration by bringing a new insight into art practices in Ankara.

Dünya değişiyor…
Sanat değişiyor…
Ankara da değişiyor…
Funda Oruç ve Uğur Karagül’ün küratörlüğünde kamusal alan konsepti ile düzenlenen TORNAVIDEO Video-Art Etkinliği 15 Ocak 2010 tarihinde Tamirhane Live Music’de açılışını yapıyor.

Bar ortamında sanat yapıtlarının sergileneceği etkinliğin temel amacı, çağdaş sanatın odak noktasında olan video sanatı ve kamusal alanda sergilemeye dikkat çekerek, sanatla ilgilenen/ilgilenmeyen her kesimi sanat yapıtlarıyla buluşturmaktır. Böylelikle hayatında hiç sergi ya da sanat etkinliğine katılmamış kişilerin sanatla tanışıklık sağlaması için fırsat sunulurken, çağdaş sanat uygulamalarının yaygınlaşması, mevcut çağdaş sanat uygulayıcılarının çalışmalarını sergileyebileceği alternatif bir alan yaratmak konularında da katkı sağlamak hedeflenmektedir. Ayrıca, Ankara’da yapılan sanat etkinliklerine yeni bir bakış açısı getirerek, Ankara’nın sanat ortamında hareketlenme yaratmak da etkinliğin amaçları arasındadır.

Uluslararası sanat ortamında aktif olan sanatçılardan, Ferhat Özgür, Gözel Radyo, Hakan Akçura, Maria Sezer, Nezaket Ekici, Ozan Adam ve Şinasi Güneş’in katılımları ile gerçekleşecek olan etkinlikte, sanatçıların animasyon, performans, video-art gibi farklı tür ve içeriklerde video çalışmaları sergilenecek.

Tornavideo Hits The Road For Some Repair Work On Contemporary Art!

Contemporary art makes another appearance in Ankara. A new exhibition activity meets the audience in a dynamic and energetic platform. With Funda Oruç and Uğur Karagül as curators, Tornavideo exhibition will meet the audience in Tamirhane Bar, a meeting point of the youth.

When we take a look at the recent contemporary art history of Ankara down the time tunnel, we see that; the 1st “International Asia-Europe Art Biennial” in 1986 was motivating for Ankara art community. This biennial chain continued in 1998- 90- 92 years. By the end of 1980s, a student from Hacettepe University called Salim Özgilik, with the moniker “Moni”, exhibited some installations and performances challenging the established order of art environment.
Founded as a branch of the first foundation university established in Turkey in 1984, Bilkent University, Fine Arts, Design and Architecture Faculty became the focal point of innovative artists. And a group of students from Fine Arts, Design and Architecture Faculty at Bilkent University formed “Grup Grip-in”. Grup Grip-in held the “Popular Myths and Graphic Image Circulation” titled exhibition in Ankara Anfa Altınpark Exhibition Center in 1992. In 1993, “Hangar Artistic Organization” was founded by Cebrail Ötgün, Murat Çelik, Hülya Çelik, Sevinç Akkaya, İbrahim Çiftçioğlu, Atilla İlkyaz and Cezmi Orhan. After making some important activities contributing to the contemporary art setting of Ankara, the organization split. The interesting “Gar Exhibition” held in Ankara Station in 1995 was shut in a single day. The installation of Selim Birsel, “Lead Sleep” is still engraved in our memories. “Youth Art Activity” has been organized four times, the first being in 1998. The most striking of these were “Youth Art-3” exhibition organized in Ankara Contemporary Arts Center in 2000 with Vasıf Kortun as the curator. This exhibition was really decisive in terms of historical process. If we examine this exhibition properly, we can clearly see that the artists in this exhibition today direct contemporary art movement in Turkey.
After that, the art practices in Ankara have frayed around the edges and seem to have run dry for so long. 2 young curators are making a stagnation-breaking contribution with the “Tornavideo” exhibition devoting all their dynamism into the work. “Tornavideo” exhibition activity contains the works of 7 contemporary artists: Ozan Adam, Hakan Akçura, Nezaket Ekici, Şinasi Güneş, Ferhat Özgür, Gözel Radyo and Maria Sezer.

The first Tornevideo exhibition artist is Ozan Adam, known for his experimental video and film works. The story of the artist’s film “The Two Names of A Testimony About The Execution of A Happening And A Suitcase Full of Broken Records” is mounted on some sequences from various stories in a sleeping man’s dreams. In another film of him, “Zymotic-Amaurosis: Contagious Arbitrary Blindness” he builds on how reality and subconscious are mixed up in a surreal way as a consequence of experiments performed on a blind man’s memory and dreams. The theme of these two films of the artist refers to psycho-social processes. And his film to be presented within the scope of Tornavideo exhibition is an animation. The music of this 1-minute animation called “Little Bird” is written by Ozan Akıncı. This animation is about the transformation of lines into shapes, then objects and figures by changing shape, and finally a spatial journey. This process takes place with a simple triangle turning into a pyramid object which is 3d form, then a cornered object after changing its shape, following it a human hand derived from this, and a woman figure with the re-forming of the hand, and finally transformation of this woman figure into a little bird flying in the tunnel of infinity. The artist finishes this animation, that begins with lines and turns into a bird figure and spreads into eternity, i.e. evolutionary process of forms with the idea of eternity ironically.
Another artist taking part in Tornavideo and describing himself as open flux artist is Hakan Akçura who lives in Sweden. The artist exhibited every document with the attribute of “mirror” requested from the persons on the internet according to their date of arrival in the “I Want My Mirrors” project leaving its mark on the minds of men. It should be noted that; Akçura also has some harsh and striking political works. One of them is the extraordinary video work he shot in Sweden with an individual named Abdulkadir Aygan, who once had connection with a terrorist organization and then escaped and settled in Sweden. Akçura preferred to spread this video known as “It Is Enough That The Truth Comes Out”. The “Open Letter to Swedish Migration Board” titled video of the artist turns the residence permit extension decision waiting process of the artist in Sweden in 2006 into a video performance, and he describes this work as “for the sake of accelerating this process for myself and to support all waiting immigrants as far as possible…”. The video of the artist to be presented in Tornavideo exhibition is again a video making reference to immigration and being an immigrant. His video “Catharsis” contains improvised actions of a group of immigrant youth in Stockholm. We can see the traces of being an immigrant in a foreign country, cultural entrapment, sense of belonging or shortly being stuck in between from the dictions, the musical tastes, dressing styles, dances and technological equipments of the youth.
Another artist in Tornavideo is Nezaket Ekici, a performing artist living in Germany. Taking every social fact as a subject, women’s problems being in the first place, the artist begins with expressing artistic actions with her body and turns them into a performance. Having also installation and video works, one of the artist’s projects “Self Diversity” is composed of performance and installations and questions gender, race and identity concepts. The performance-video with the title “Wardrobe” will be exhibited in “Tornavideo”. The artist stands before a two-door wardrobe half-naked and takes some clothes and puts them down. After this, the artist stars wearing the clothes continuously one after the other. As the clothes are put on successively, they start creating a physical pressure on the artist. However, the artist is insistent on wearing them. The artist’s insistence on wearing in her intellectual dimension clashes with the resulting physical pressure. This clash ends with the artist getting help from the individuals around. Emphasizing the naturalness of mankind at the beginning of the performance with “being naked”, the artist becomes distanced to this naturalness as she wears the clothes one after the other, and becomes alienated to herself first, and then the surrounding environment.

With his installations, works on canvas theoretically built on hermeneutics and constantly deconstructed, video art works where he interprets the visual sometimes with an ironical seriousness, and sometimes with a mise en scene language and his art aesthetics captured in the ordinary in all his works, one of the important projects of the contemporary artist Şinasi Güneş is “Obsession”. Seeing the light of day in 2005, this project helped to create a memory record in terms of audio art videos. The close ties of the artist with mail art have been actualized in his mail art projects on “Watch”, “Fundamentalism”, “Global Warming”, “Woman and Ecology”, “Gypsies”. Güneş also prepares street-art promoting publishes and fills a gap in this sense. He offers an alternative course to contemporary art practices with an e-zine named “e-benzin” published on electronic environment. Some of his videos area “Horned Toad”, “Anatolia”, “Batumi”, “After the Sheep”, “New York and Chewing Gum”. His video “New York and Chewing Gum” is built on the traces of many chewing gums deliberately or unconsciously thrown by people of New York to Brooklyn Subway floor. Having turned this performance into a book with the same title, the artist has completed the deconstruction process.
The artist is featured in Tornavideo with the “My Lovely Hats” titled video constructed again with an ironical and cynical mise en scene. The artist puts on several objects over his head like hats. There are art books, flower pots, bags, buckets, boilers etc. among these objects. Each hat refers to a social role and points to a character fact. The artist strengthens the sense of rhythm with a background rap song. We see ironic allusions in this video.

Ferhat Özgür, a contemporary artist living in Ankara, underlined and expressed urban progress of Ankara, rational and irrational results of modernism, city-individual and change facts in his “City Journal” titled exhibition composed of his photograph and video pieces of work. We witness the points underlined by the artist in the negative effects of recent urban transformation programs that eventually lead to “destruction” in metropolises particularly in Istanbul. A series of performative photo works of Özgür in historical places with the title “Jump", and also the “Jump” titled video of him creates some mise en scene situations with the artist trying to touch the peak points by jumping. The artist added city-individual dualism building and history and expended the interpretation perspective. Getting involved in “Tornavideo” with his video titled “Upper Garden”, Ferhat Özgür appears with a different theme. In this video, he shows the military greeting ritual process in sequences with the preparation to ceremony until the end of ceremony. The artist begins with showing ritual elements like cannon ball, helmet, shoulder mark one after the other, and following this, we see some sequences from the march of soldiers and greeting ritual, then the greeting ritual ends.

An interesting artist in “Tornavideo” is Gözel Radyo, who first of all brings together cues with music and as a pioneer blends electronic music with arabesque and oriental tunes. Some of the released music albums are “No-Exotic”, “Sound of the World: Turkey” and their fanzine is entitled “Güzel Mecmuası”. The artist creates versatile alternative works. The video which will be shown in “Tornavideo” is “İsyanbul 2010”. The artist acts in his own way over some scenes and dialogues from old Turkish films and achieves a comic effect. At this point, there are some experimental verbal rhythms streaming and they accompany the images in the background. The artist begins the message bombardment with smart cards and continues with microchips and ends with GMO. The artist associates these elements with Istanbul 2010 project as the name suggests. The artist makes use of ad techniques in the presentation of the messages placed within the video flow in critical moments. Therefore, the influence area of the video is extended.

Another artist in “Tornavideo” is Maria Sezer who states “Opposing the nature and trying to dominate the nature does not always bring happiness to people” and uses nature and time as a reference in her artistic works. Time and change are states where the artist makes the ironic and complicated association of these two concepts an object of inquiry in her works or naturally exhibits it. In one of Sezer’s installation works taking Rapunzel story as the center, the artist nearly creates an image of ladder with black, long and bush-formed yarns just like Rapunzel’s hair. Having assembled beauty and nature concepts with the sense of protection in this work, the artist designs original raku plates by using the special firing technique known as raku in another exhibition. Being a notable expert of transforming natural materials, the artist will appear in “Tornavideo” with her video titled “Swarm” created with similar operations. The video begins with the display of a colony of bees flying in the air, and then the movements of bees in and out of their hives are shown like a ceremony to the audience. Each entry to the hive means that a brood waiting at a cell gets fed and remains alive. Each swarm becoming a grown bee moves out of the cell to make honey.

I think the most striking element in Tornavideo exhibition activity including Funda Oruç and Uğur Karagül as curators is that; most of the internationally active artists in the exhibition consist of the rare independent artists in Turkey.
I hope this exhibition will precipitate art project initiatives and serve as a factor in emergence of new breath in the contemporary art scene.

Kolkata film society puts spotlight on world cinema
Pramita Bose
As long as there will be films, there will be the need for film societies. Cine Central in Calcutta (now Kolkata) was formed 44 autumns back in September 1965 with filmmaker Madhu Bose as its honourable president and Satyajit Ray as its vice-president. Riding on its legacy as a cultural organisation with a rich repertoire of movies, this non-commercial, non-governmental film society is devoted to film appreciation through screenings of contemporary and classic films, besides printing, organising exhibitions, seminars and discussions. Four decades after its inception, the society stands at the helm of steering a movement for cinema with social relevance.
Cine Central’s latest presentation was the landmark programme, titled "International Forum of New Cinema". Held at the Basusree cinemaghar in Kolkata from November 13-19 under the broad framework of the just concluded 15th Kolkata Film Festival, the fest showcased about 60 films from 25 countries across the globe. On the inaugural day, octogenarian filmmaker Mrinal Sen graced the occasion as the chief guest and national award-winning Tollywood actor and chairman, Kolkata Film Festival, Soumitra Chatterjee, was the guest of honour.
As usual, the "International Forum of New Cinema" was divided into different segments. The main section — Panorama of World Cinema — featured about 25 modern films from the nations, the "hotbeds" of film production. The opening film was the Swedish Everlasting Moments, made in 2008 and directed by Jan Troell. In the retrospective section, five films of renowned Japanese director Mikio Naruse was screened.
Nilanjan Chattopadhyay, director, Kolkata Film Festival said: "This is for the first time that Naruse’s retrospective is being held in the city. Another interesting section was the Panorama Of Czech Comedy. In the Focus category, both Hungarian cinema as well as Chinese flicks were screened. Another highlight of the festival was a package of new Turkish cinema and in the spotlight bracket, the light was shed on a collection of seven eclectic French films."
Almost 15 years ago, the state administration took over the Cine Central film festival, but the taste of such rare enlightening entertainment never lost its original gloss. It still retains its typical character, essence and flavours of individual entity. "The government is only lending an infrastructural support and funds from its coffers to host the festival on a this scale. The spotlight this year was on the new Turkey cinema and the reputed revolutionary Turkish filmmaker Sinasi Günes’ films were screened.
There were other good names, beyond Wong Kar-wai or Ang Lee. Noticeably, there’s a deep Hollywood impact on Chinese flicks, both in terms of technique and style. A formidable line-up of Indian cinema was juxtaposed with a slew of critically acclaimed foreign films," says Chattopadhyay.
The only cons sticking out as a sore thumb was the date of the festival which got postponed, prompting a delayed takeoff for the grand affair. The reason cited for this fiasco was the unavailability of a proper venue with reasonable rentals in the central part of the city. "Financially, our hands are tied. The government has only promised a grant of 25 per cent out of the total cost. So, we could not book a decent cinema hall to host the festival for seven continuous days. This happened last year too. With rapid changes in the cultural vistas of urban sectors, the cityscape is also changing. The cinema halls are being razed to ground only to erect swanky malls, behemoth high-rises and plush multiplexes. Unless we have a hall of our own, it would be very difficult to organise such fests in the near future. The real-estate bosses are busy filling in their pockets with the money-minting business of constructing one-stop destinations under one canopy. And sadly enough, we can’t hire the multiplexes for its exorbitant rates and secondly, we need a huge spacious hall that can house a strength of 1,000 seats per show. Hence, we are left with no choices but to settle for something that is affordable," says Sanjib Dutta, spokesperson, Cine Central.
Actor Soumitra Chatterjee says: "I feel privileged to have established close links with this premier film society of India. I have a high regard for their penchant for choosing high-class films to upgrade this film festival of international excellence and grow from strength to strength. I may implore the cineastes and organisers of this festival to keep their traditions of holding debates and discussions alive forever."
Commenting on the heavy turnout at the ticket-counters during the film fests, Mrinal Sen said: "This is surely an eye-popping confluence of many people hailing from different walks of life across ages and the diverse social strata. Undoubtedly, the government has a pivotal role and responsibility to play as an arranger, procurer and disseminator to the audiences at large. But at the end of the day, it is the true love and undying passion for cinema that sustains one’s urge and inclination to see and appreciate a jewel of films. It is not feasible to put the stress on quantity and not quality, while plucking movies for a festive package, because otherwise, the catalogue of films easily gets crammed with too many options. The selection procedure should thus be crucial enough."
The first show of the society was held at the Tiger Cinema on October 31, 1965 and by the end of the opening year itself, it got to screen around 45 films and the membership increased every month. Soon, it was identified as the largest film society in India and ever since, it has been trying to maintain the benchmark that it set. It has accorded equal attention to the cause of Indian cinema.
In 1966, it organised the first ever "Festival of Indian Cinema" in Kolkata where regional movies were shown. The society regularly screens films of Indian directors, mostly award-winning ventures by both well-known and upcoming filmmakers.
Sudhir Nandgaonkar, general secretary, Federation Of Film Societies Of India, says: "The film society movement had an extremely strong foundation in Kolkata since the 1950s and ’60s. Thanks to the great auteurs like Satyajit Ray, Mrinal Sen, Ritwik Ghatak and Tapan Sinha, the model of Bengali cinema rose to prominence on the national cultural map. This archetypal pattern of arthouse genre or parallel cinema, which mirrored the defining socio-political upheavals and economic crisis in India and elsewhere, was difficult on the part of Mumbai matinees to imbibe since the Mayanagari was still being reigned by pot-boilers. Hence, in the industrial capital, this culturally vibrant movement was visibly weak."
He adds: "It was only after Mrinal Sen’s 1969 Hindi film Bhuvan Shome, starring Utpal Dutt and Suhasini Mulay and narrated by Amitabh Bachchan, that the film movement gained momentum and found a new wave, voice and expression of cinema. This was a revelation for the film school graduates, a lease of life in terms of filmmaking as a craft."
