Cevdet Erek: A Long Distance Eelation

21 October 2017–21 January 2018

Exhibition Overview

Pavilion of Turkey at the 57th Venice Biennale, 2017, installation view

Cevdet Erek aims to make the best out of a human communication through digital media connected to a specific physical space: the architectonic and acoustic conditions of the Sound Experimentation Space of MUAC.

Erek’s architectonic and musical career is always present in his work and on this time will operate though lent the eyes, ears, and hands of the collaborators in order to activate the material quality of the SES, not only as a device for the reproduction, but also as an instrument.
