‘House of My Dreams’ or ‘The Shepherd‘

Studio-X Istanbul
Jun 17, 2016 - Jul 23, 2016

“Everyone has a house with golden windows, a house that is desired, but which loses its dream-like features and golden windows once it is a house.” Based on different interpretations of ‘home’ this collective exhibition features a video installation by Bager Akbay as well as works by Sibel Adakçı, Gökçe Baturay, Malte Brandenburg, Zeynep Erol, Ömer Tevfik Erten, Moritz Haas and Eleni Zervou.

The creation of the exhibition is planned as it could be controlled by an artificial intelligence but almost all the decisions were made by humans.

The exhibition is made by a number of people who had no idea about the exhibition. At first, some were asked to create a plan for a generic exhibition. Those plans were reviewed by consultants and were executed afterwards. Of the initial group, some were asked to create more human resources, and the whole team was expanded to 35 members.

Texts like the manifesto and the application form were written by the crew. In addition to that, call for applications, selection of applications, communication with artists, planning and installation were made by the same persons.

30 artist from different countries have applied for the exhibition, and accepted artworks are exhibited. All this process happened with almost no interference. Until the production, the crew had no contact to each other, all the communication happened through a fictional character named “Sabiha Akman”.
