MUSEUM ACQUISITION | ISTANBUL MODERN, ISTANBUL

Galerist is pleased to announce the acquisition of TUNCA’s  trilogy of drawings ‘Rotunda I, II, II’ by Istanbul Modern.  ‘Rotunda I, II, III’ is inspired by the water reservoirs of a camp located in Birkenau, three kilometers west of Auschwitz. His works hold visual clues to the ways in which flaneurism and a relational urban experience can render space and memory fluid and ambivalent. The artist deals with the relationship of collective memory with spatial components of architecture that at times functions as a visual expression of mechanisms through which political and socio-economic power tends to fixate the flow of history by institutionalizing space as the bearer of memory.
