Palatti Istanbul : Palatti in Istabul, Turkey. The team worked in Caravansarai. As part of 'Art Pie', the Dutch Kunstvlaai project, Palatti exhibited in the Tüyap art fair 2010 in Istanbul.
Autumn 2010, Palatti artists worked for several weeks in Istanbul, Turkey. They made a site specific project for Art Pie’s first Edition in Istanbul. The exhibition took part within the Tüyap art fair : in total 18 Dutch art initiatives were invited who each had a space in a 11.000 m2 hall.
In Istanbul, Palatti worked in the production space of Caravansarai’s artist residency. Situated in Karaköy, a neighbourhood filled with small shops and peddlers walking around.
For several weeks, the artists built up their Palatti-working space as they gradually discovered more about the city. This new surrounding was their lead to new work, finding their inspiration from byzantine patterns, fish markets, carpets, new sounds and cultural habits.
This exhibition will befollowed up by a presentation in art space Kulter in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
Participating artists: Audrey Bakx, Anna Bas Backer, Gerardo Gómez Tonda, Betty Ras and Sara Pape García.
With the support of Caravansarai and The Mondriaan Foundation in the Netherlands.
