280610: Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary T-B A21 Tactics of Invisibility

Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary T-B A21 Tactics of Invisibility 15.04.10 – 15.08.10 On the tracks of the invisible Of course, it is immediately apparent that this exhibition presents Turkish artistic positions. And of course it would be problematic to declare them as Turkish, as these days the country of origin only plays a minor role. And some of the artists, whose works are shown at the exhibition “Tactics of Invisibility” at the Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary in Vienna, don’t even live in Turkey. However, one cannot emphasize enough how important the transfer between Turkish and European art centres is. Unfortunately, the discourse is only slowly picking up in Vienna and therefore Thyssen-Bornemisza’s commitment is all the more significant. “Tactics of Invisibility” is a collaborative project between Arter in Istanbul and Tanas in Berlin. The exhibition chose an interesting approach: a kind of stocktaking along the borderlines of the ephemeral, hardly tangible. For example, when transitional forms materialize from the trivial to the transcendental, when Islamic prayer rooms take on the character of a DIY store. On the other hand, Nasan Tur shows Islamic prayer houses in Western cities whose entrances inconspicuously lead into apartment buildings or courtyards. He presents them on surveillance monitors and they appear as undefined “non-locations”. A different generation: Füsun Onur’s installation composed of furniture and objects of everyday-life “Dream of old furniture”. Noteworthy also the reencounter with Esra Ersen’s school uniform installation, which originated in Linz, as well as Ahmet Ogut’s work. This time Ogut filmed US Army aircrafts, which are no longer in service, at an army base in Arizona. One can easily imagine that the accompanying voice on the audio track, which is heard counting, associates the numbers with war victims or the number of weapons in the arsenals. Works by Inci Eviner, Nilbar Güres, Hafriyat and Ali Kazma are also presented. Sound, as an invisible component, is also part of the exhibition. Cevdet Erek presents his sound installations and Ayse Erkmen lets white loudspeakers hang from the ceiling, which are systematically combined with lighting fixtures, emitting white light. One approach is called Beethoven, who composed two piano trios –known as “ghost trios” - and which he dedicated to Anna Maria Erdödy. And the Thyssen Bornemisza Art Contempary gallery is located in the palace named after Erdödy. Erkmen refers to rumours about the existence of a girl’s ghost in the rooms and transformed a canon into a single soprano voice – in a room with white light, in which any artistic presentation disappears as soon as it appears. And before this is the case, one should make sure to visit the exhibition as well as its extension at the Klaus Engelhorn Depot in Vienna’s Ottakring disctrict.
