Psolo exhibition
Vahit Tuna
7 March – 8 April 2017

Psolo exhibition is installed in four spaces independently, proposing a name that combines the words “psyche” and “solo.”
…Psyche includes all the definitions of the personality, conscious, and unconscious, all emo-tions, thoughts, and behaviors. Psyche consists of systems that work differently from each other and yet are simultaneously in dialogue. The most influential force in our personality is the collective subconscious that comprises of all of the experiences of human history. Our collective subconscious directs us in defining all our shared experiences.
—C.G. Jung

In this exhibition, Tuna reads the differences between subjective and objective times, distanc-es between memory/loss and consciousness through the collective. The installing of the exhibition in four different venues encourages the viewers to re-interpret the notions work/time/distance/memory, presenting a new space of experience outside of modes of tradi-tional exhibition viewings. Psolo exhibition draws attention to not only the visual aspects of objects, but also to the relationship between sound, body, and the psyche.

…Perhaps this piece of marble is an infinite pile of live objects or it is like a lake full of fish…

Psolo exhibition opens simultaneously at Alt Art Space, Galerist, MARSistanbul, REM Art Space on Tuesday March 7, 2017 at 4pm. The opening cocktail will take place at Alt Art Space after 630pm.
