Mayhem, 2011, is the newly commissioned work by acclaimed Turkish artist and filmmaker, Kutlug Ataman. The installation animates the atmospheric disused space of the Old Municipal Market and is presented alongside two versions of ‘Su’, 2009, two of his major recent works which will be shown in the UK for the first time.
Mayhem (2011) was filmed at Las Cataratas del Iguazu, the Iguazu Falls, in the Mesopotamia region of Argentina, at the largest part of the falls: the Devil’s Throat.
Su takes its name from the Turkish word for water. This piece was filmed throughout a year illustrating the different moods of the Bosphorus, the narrow straight that separates Europe and Asia.
Ataman was born in Istanbul in 1961
A beautiful, mesmeric, meditative and moving piece of work. Don't miss it
