3 March - 18 April 2021 TEMPO INCOGNITO: ON FLOWS, RHYTHM, AND MOVEMENT The exhibition Tempo Incognito: On Flows, Rhythm, and Movement will take place in art space Depo, Istanbul. Curated by Rana Öztürk, the group exhibition and its accompanying programme intends to examine the experience and conceptualization of “temporality” in contemporary societies while exploring how our current sense of time is clashing or in tune with the perception of natural, ecological and universal cycles. The current experience of the pandemic has left us in a suspended place, in which we can no longer continue our earlier routines. It has also highlighted many of the urgencies caused by the accelerated rhythm of contemporary society and its damage to the planet. Under these circumstances, the questions that the exhibition aimed to put forward become all the more pertinent. How is temporality experienced on a daily basis within the shifting context of technological, economic and urban systems? What are its implications on the body and its environs, as a site of both individual and collective experiences? Is it possible to move beyond the great divide between the historical time of the society and the time imposed by nature? Can today's ecological crisis, considered to be a direct consequence of the history of human activity, also offer a way of embedding this very history into a deeper geological temporality? How do we negotiate these various experiences of time that are both in harmony and in conflict with each other? Participating artists include Ali Miharbi, Kerem Ozan Bayraktar, Sergen Şehitoğlu, Yağız Özgen, Alper Aydın & Ayşegül Güldöşek, Burçak Bingöl, Cevdet Erek, Deniz Üster & Gürçim Yılmaz, Ece Eldek, Ege Kanar, Ezgi Tok, Fiona Reilley, Handan Saatçioğlu, Leman Sevda Darıcıoğlu & Hasan Aksaygın, Linda Boļšakova, Louise Manifold, Nikolaus Gansterer, Selçuk Artut, Sinem Dişli.
