Hayat Kısa, Sanat Uzun, Bizans’ta Şifa Sanatı / Life Is Short, Art Long The Art of Healing in Byzantium

11 February – 26 April 2015

This exhibition shows the influence of Byzantium’s ancient cultural heritage on religion and rational thought and also scientific developments and innovations from around the Mediterranean.
Icons, reliquaries, and amulets, marble carvings, medical equipment, plants and herbs, medical and botanical manuscripts, and the centers of healing and miracle in Istanbul.

For me the most interesting thing in this exhibition was a video. I had to wait one year until the artist published the video on YouTube. It was showing “The Wondrous Waters of Constantinople”, seeing all those wonderful buildings in 3D animated was a like dream for me. There are many other works of the same artist on his channel.

& Alberto Giacometti

11 February – 26 April 2015

This was the exhibition where I met Giacometti for the first time and afterwards SAW his works in every single museum I visited, you may call it “selective perception” but I have never realized you could find his works that frequently. You can easily recognize him but his way of sculpting. Thin, very thin!
