The Paradise on Mars group exhibition is on at Istanbul’s OJ Art Space, opening September 15 and running to September 29.
Curated by Erdem Cetrez, the show is an exercise in speculative fiction. Employing the backdrop of the newly colonised Mars, artists are invited to reflect on the “politically stuck and contradictory state of the present-day Earth” and fantasise on the potential of humankind as they set about establishing a new society on the rust-coloured planet.
The show brings together new and recent painting, sculpture, video and site-specific installation from local and internationally-based artists, including Adam Stamp, Andrew Birk, Berk Cakmakci, Bora Akinciturk, Burkut Kum, Emma Stern, Huey Crowley, Lara Joy Evans, Michele Gabriele, Monia Ben Hamouda, Nicole Colombo, Pinar Marul and Vitaly Bezpalov,
