Hera Büyüktaşçıyan, Every tide has its ebb, 2016

Installation view at Corridor Project Space, Amsterdam

Every tide has its ebb is a site-specific intervention by Hera Büyüktaşçıyan, examining the tidal nature of the city as well as how water creates dualities on both physical and virtual level. White bricks flowing over the ceiling unfolds the space like the tidal movement of time and enables a liquefied memory to reveal itself within layers. This flux within the space transforms what is concrete into a fluid language that resurfaces hidden aspects of time and histories -urban, social, individual, and political- that continues to exist within a wave.The piece becomes a corporeal reminder of these forgotten elements of everyday life and questions the duality and dialectics of geography, politics, urbanism and our own human nature through the infinite virtuality of water.

In this framework, taking its name from a Dutch proverb, Every tide has its ebb refers to the tidal movement between reality and virtuality, visible and invisible politics that define the dynamics of existence and resistance. Whatever that disappears, would reveal itself again…

A Particular Scenario is a three-series exhibition in which artists from Turkey and the Netherlands will collaborate with a writer. A Particular Scenario focuses on storytelling as practice in contemporary art and each series will wander through a different theme, respectively land, water and wind. The project intends to create a personal, aesthetic and political connection between the cities of Amsterdam and Istanbul.
