Art, Imagination & Creativity

RUBY SKY STILER in conversation with EDA ÖZDOYURAN Eda Özdoyuran is a young curator who draws our attention with her distinct curation. She works for various galleries, fairs and independent projects both in New York and Europe. Eda is in conversation with Ruby Sky Stiler who is not only an artist; also offers other artists a platform where they can experiment and perform freely. Eda says “For me, art is not just creating work nor is curating simply exhibiting those works. I think they both must be interwoven with disciplines such as philosophy, literature, history, architecture and anthropology. Contemporary art shouldn't be taken as an abstract concept, independent of its era. Its relation to history and culture should not be overlooked.

Abstain from becoming mechanical!

Simge Burhanoğlu and Ata Doğruel – two young artists who put performing arts where life and art meet on a thin, sometimes invisible line, at the heart of their lives. With her project “Performistanbul” in late 2015, Simge gathered performance artists from all around Turkey under one roof, and helped this discipline become widespread in the country by offering assistance in finding sponsors and venues for various projects. Experiencing the boundaries of both mind and body, especially with the concept of endurance in mind, Ata is Simge’s latest performance at Kabak Cove. He says, “If my performance can resonate with someone who has never heard of it before, or push him/her to behave in some other way, then I consider that performance mature.” Here’s a pleasant conversation about new schools of performing arts, mind, body, and the future.
