Museum

Proje4L was founded by collectors Sevda and Can Elgiz under the name of “Istanbul Museum of Contemporary Art” in its former premises in Levent. The museum opened in 2001, when there were no non-profit institutions in Turkey dedicated to contemporary art. In September 2011, Elgiz Museum started celebrating the 10th year of its commitment to contemporary art in Turkey with a book and a panel of international women collectors as well as special exhibitions and events that will be lasting until September 2012.

Established with a mission to promote the development of contemporary art in Turkey, the initiative focused on providing space, support and international visibility to projects by young Turkish artists. As new art institutions and museums bloomed in Turkish art scene in 2005, the collectors converted the space to a private collection museum under the name ‘Elgiz Museum of Contemporary Art’ to host the Elgiz Collection. Proje4L/Elgiz Museum of Contemporary Art is located in the dynamic business district of Istanbul, Maslak and is open to the public free of charge.

The First Institution of Contemporary Art in Turkey

Elgiz Collection consists of works of by influential Turkish and international artists, such as Ömer Uluç, Fahrelnissa Zeid, Abdurrahman Öztoprak, Tracey Emin, Jan Fabre, Barbara Kruger, Cindy Sherman, Andy Warhol, Julian Schnabel, Sol LeWitt, Peter Halley, Paul McCarthy, Gilbert & George, Robert Rauschenberg, Doug Aitken. The eclectic content of the collection allows the viewer to enjoy a comprehensive journey through the major contemporary art movements of the last two decades, while promoting the globalization of Turkish art. With the integration of new works by young artists the Elgiz Collection maintains its dynamism and prevalence.

The new space of the Elgiz Museum of Contemporary Art is established on 2000m2 of exhibiton space. Aside from the main hall, reserved for displaying selections from the Elgiz Collection, there are two Project Rooms, an Open Archive Room and a conference room. The Project Rooms are commisioned to young Turkish talents to give them a chance to exhibit their work, in some cases, for the first time. The archive room is for gallerists, collectors and art enhusiasts to browse through submitted artist portfolios and contact artists of their interest. The conference room hosts lectures focused on passion for collecting.

A new addition to the exhibition space of the museum was constructed on top of the Elgiz Museum as a 1500 m2 open air exhibition space, in the shade of the surrounding plazas, to provide a platform to young artists. The very first exhibition Terrace Exhibitions <40 is planned to take space between June 18 – August 18 2012. Various contemporary

Art exhibitions are planned to take place on the Terrace.

MARCUS OEHLEN (detail)
Bad im Bad (Bathing in a Bath), 2000
Enamel on canvas
255.3 x 266.7 cm
Acquisition date: 2007
 
MARKUS OEHLEN (1956 Krefeld, Almanya --)
 
“By combining multiple influences from Symbolist and Surrealist, Pop and Op-Art Oehlen creates a mixture of found, objective and subjective realities with his art works. You can feel the freedom of form, yet the precision in composition is omnipresent. The passive appraisal of form is neglected in favour of an active formation, the ‘cognative change’ constitutes perception itself as the principle of construction. Going beyon ‘pure painting’, Oehlen’s analytical position is indispensable in today’s flood of images. After all, he lets us reconsider the ‘media’ in media art."

NAN GOLDIN (detail)
Red Sky From My Window, NYC, 2000 
Cibachrome Print
76 x 102 cm 
Acquisition date: 2003
 
NAN GOLDIN (1953 ABD --)
 
“(...) Goldin began photographing to build “a visual diary” using photography ‘as a means to record and understand my life and those lives to which I’ve had antimate access.’ Over the years of documenting her world, the vast majority of her images picture people –roomates, best friends, lovers ... – (...) But even in the unpeople, pure landscape (or skyscapes or seascapes) there is a specific personal connection signifnicant to the artist (...). The artist explains ‘In some of these works, I want to capture a mood, an essence more enduring than a moment.’ Her motivation may be connected to the time she’s recently been spending looking at abstract art, finding inspiration in artists such as Mark Rothko, Agnes Martin, Brice Marden, and Richard Tuttle, to make her art less specific, more fundamental. She has commented, ‘Since 1996 I’ve been looking for the spiritual in my work...My recent work isn’t as much about people’s behaviour and the wildness. It is more about isolating the essential of the other person. It’s more about contemplation and identity and less about crisis and alienation. But there’s still the same degree of passion and intimacy.’ (...) After three decades of building her colorful and complicated “visual diary”, Goldin continues to share an increasingly broad range of human experiences, enhancing these moments with the transcendent forces of nature’s light and landscape.” (...)

JULIAN SCHNABEL (detail)
Harold's Always Saying Goodbye IV, 1998
Oil paint, spray paint and resin on canvas (The Artist's frame)
201 x 170 cm
Acquisition date: 1999
 
JULIAN SCHNABEL (1951 New York --)
 
“It is fascinating and astonishing to see how aspects which always contrast with each other succeed in living alongside each other in Julian Schnabel’s work. These dichotomous elements which constantly clash, generate a sort of vital impulse in frequently heightened tones and unexpected expressive flourishes. There is no stillness in this art, nor can one speak of a harmonious surface in view of the torn and emaciated structure which is assaulted by colour, trodden down and corroded by a pictorial matter which gives no quarter and allows no respite. Violence appears as a constant presence, a suffocating nightmare which invades space and spreads everywhere, occupying every nook and cranny and penetrating every breath.”

GÜN (detail)
Last Breakfast, 2010
Photograph
157 x 200 cm
Acquisition date: 2011

GÜN (1956, İstanbul --)

My recent work explores the ancient mythology of this land. However I create a unity with contemporary media. The most important concept for me is to emphasize the ‘remix-like’ formation. A re-mixed form in the same way as one might remix music; a view of this life style of ours. Keeping myself away from nationalistic values, from the past to the present, the land that shelters this process is always more important for me... I have an idea which I carry through today that my parent language expressed in ancient times. I preserve a merciless power in my chromosomes and I nurture it in a way. This is the urgency of my creative process.

GILBERT & GEORGE
Gilbert Proesch (1943, Italy --) (George Passmore 1942, England --)

“In 1989, Gilbert & George reexamined this glossy realm of colour pictures for the people, transforming these cheap, throwaway multiples into emblems of such awesome dimensions, complexities, and dazzle that, in an unexpected leap of the imagination, they have made this free-floating imagine-bank blaze like a new kind of secular altarpiece. The iconic structure of these twenty-five “world” as Gilbert & George call them enforces this unexpected sanctity.”

ERGIN CAVUSOGLU (detail)
Resonance, 2002
Acrylic on canvas
71 x 305 cm
Acquisition date: 2001
 
ERGIN CAVUSOGLU (1968, Bulgaria --)
 
“Ergin Çavuşoğlu uses in his works paintings, photograps and moving objects. Traditional materials and digital technology display a unity. In his paintings in which the inner space and the outer space are presented. As the other vis-à-vis one another, he examines the relation that the induvidual establishes with the surroundings in the context of the self and the other in the urban environment depicted in the figurative compositions. His latest work in the series titled Bildbegehren (‘the desired image’) are basic on the illusion of mental images and their necessity and their pictorial representation. The conceptual frame work is borrowed from Walter Benjamin’s work Bilddenken (‘thinking with images’). These images exhibit the transformation of Denkbild (‘the imagined image’) and Bildbegehren (‘the desired image’) to a visual formal material. The photographs and paintings are depictions of the urban environment contained within a formal frame. For this reason, the works indicate the issues of display, represantation and aesthetic values. The elements in the images were placed in order to recall mental images or to provake as a means of complementing the reading of the scene. At the same time, keeping in mind the absence of visual image, foundation is presented for the imagined image and the desired image.”

CINDY SHERMAN (detail)
Untitled #184
Color photograph
156 x 231 cm
Acquisition date: 2005
 
CINDY SHERMAN (New Jersey, 1954 --)
 
As a member of a generation raised on broadcast media, Sherman, seems to have instinctively tapped into and reflected the archetypal undertones of the TV and movie legends she consumed. As her art making continued, Sherman found herself digging deeper into the myths behind these single-frame "stories." Her intuition, it seems, led directly to the darker subjects of her extreme later works, disturbing visions that draw on our universal fear of nightmares and physical decay. Instinct, Sherman has suggested, is her artistic MO, and it also serves as the best way to approach her work. There is something irresistible about her images, and their magnetism holds firm whether you analyze them or not. Her recent photographs combine elements from fairy tales and horror films, cheesy fake butts and breasts, gruesome but gleeful gore and an incredibly lush sense of color. And frightening as they may be, like passing a bloody five-car pileup on the freeway, it's hard not to look. And just what does Sherman think is so alluring about the grisly Gothic overtones that now dominate her photographs? "This is my theory," she says, "it prepares you psychically for the potential for violence in your own life. Or your own death. I think it's also a way to be removed enough from it to even laugh at it. It just further prepares you for something that you don't look forward to having to experience."

DARREN ALMOND (detail)
Fullmoon@Petten, 2001
Lambda print
128.5 x 129.5 cm
Acquisition date: 2007
 
DARREN ALMOND (1971 Wigan, England --)
 
“Darren Almond’s diverse work, incorporating film, installation, sculpture and photography, deals with evocative meditations on time and duration as well as the themes of personal and historical memory. Since 1998, Almond has been making a series of landscape photographs known as the Fullmoons. Taken during a full moon with an exposure time of 15 minutes or more, these images of remote geographical locations appear ghostly, bathed in an unexpectedly brilliant light where night seems to have been turned into day.”

SOL LE WITT (detail)
Irregular Grid, 1999
Gouache on paper
153 x 230 cm
Acquisition date: 2000
 
SOL LEWITT (1928, Connecticut - 2007, New York)
 
“Far from the anecdotes that we try to introduce into the interpretation of a work, and estranged from the temporal nature of events, the work of Sol LeWitt calls simply for an exploration of its own language. On paper, lines and geometrical figures, whose contours are caressed by our eyes, are inscribed by their voluntary traces. In space, usually simple volumes stand out one against the other. They are visible manifestations of systems and rules which are defined in creative fashion, bringing all sorts of combinations into play: progressions, permutations, inversions... There thus appears the rigor of a “thought-surveyor”, an inventor of structures, structures which do not exist outside the perception that reveals them. An absolute challenge, which in some way reminds us that lines, forms, colors and volumes can produce an infinitive variety of works, of great simplicity or great complexity, which generate their own movements”.

ABDURRAHMAN ÖZTOPRAK (detail)
Painting 440 Missa Solemnis Respect for L.V. Beethoven, In Memoriam of Nüvit Özdoğru, 2005
Mixed media on canvas
300 x 360 cm
Acquisition date: 2005
 
ABDURRAHMAN OZTOPRAK (1927 Istanbul --)
 
“It is observed that the phenomenon of “musical” rhythm emerges through form and colour in Abdurrahman Öztoprak’s abstract compositions, beginning from the 1960s. For over half a century, Öztoprak developed a “different painting language through the inspiration of the composers of the classical period in Western Music, primarily from Beethoven. Öztoprak has a privilaged status in Turkish Modern Painting because of the visualization in his canvases of a formerly unattempted synergy between music and painting. Öztoprak captured extremely disparate visual values by using the elements, silver, gold and bronze in his canvases since 1971. When these elements, generally used in the traditional arts, come together with the distinctive colours of the artist, they awaken a feeling of a strong, cosmic atmosphere in his works. When Öztoprak’s forms, appearing, floating on the canvas, defying gravity so to speak, come together with the elements that create the atmosphere, they create exceedingly interesting visual synergies.”
