Curating Art: Objects Through Time. Talk with Iaspis Studio Grantholder Burçak Bingöl and Anna Källén at Accelerator

Date: Wednesday 27 November 2019 Time: 6-8pm Place: Accelerator Address: Frescativägen 26A, Stockholm Language: English

Accelerator has a collaboration with the International Master’s Programme in Curating Art at Stockholm University. The students create events in connection to themes that Accelerator wishes to highlight in the exhibition programme. Curators for Curating Art’s fourth event is Onur Çimen, Ellen Klintenberg Gedda and Yuying Hu. They will present an evening that focuses on historical material and cultural heritage in connection to Cyprien Gaillard’s exhibition.

In his exhibition Overburden, Cyprien Gaillard critically addresses concepts of decay, renewal and reconstruction – bringing forth questions concerning the presence and certain usagesof historical objects in current times. In relation to Gaillard’s exhibition, artist Burçak Bingöl and Associate Professor in Archaeology Anna Källén will have a conversation about cultural heritage and the temporal qualities of historical matter. The talk will revolve around current roles and conditions of objects of the past in today’s society – especially in contemporary artistic practices. What stories and perspectives become invisible when we address historical objects from a contemporary point of view – and what layers of interpretation are added?

Artist Burçak Bingöl is based in Turkey and explores notions of belonging, cultural heritage, identity, decoration and failure. Working with various mediums such as ceramics, drawing, video and installation, Bingöl’s works can be seen as psychological landscapes that hover between abstraction and representation, rejection and preservation – both embracing and disregarding Eastern and Western traditions. Bingöl is one of the current residencies of Iaspis.
