We are excited to kick off 2020’s program Frozen Time with the first opening of the year at Corridor Project Space on January 17th. Artists Vincent Ceraudo (FR) and Egemen Tuncer(TR) are taking over our space to reflect on this year’s theme with the exhibition Real Virtuality, that will discuss the relation of time and space, as well as reflecting on how past forms a reference for future.

As both Vincent and Egemen are visuals artists working with moving-images, to them Frozen Time represents an inherent notion and a constitutive aspect of moving-images. The exhibition Real Virtuality is incorporating moving images under different technics, Computer Rendered Images, digital videos, document and models. It will be developed through a new parcourse shaped specifically for the exhibition space presenting the different video works developed. Ceraudo and Tuncer does not prefer to underline Virtual Reality in a too much didactic sense, by using technical devices such as VR helmets, but on the contrary, they are using video and the exhibition space as a darkroom to transcend to the viewer this feeling of Real Virtuality, by orchestring the physical relation between their bodies through the space in relation to our own works appearing on several screens.

Frozen Time reflects our current societal obsession with time. People take courses in time management; many are diagnosed with burnouts; and more and more people actively engage with the concept of living in the here and now. Moreover, the influence and omnipresence of the digital and electronics life in our ordinary, setting up the ideal of a life without pause, making us active at any time of day and night, erasing the difference in working time and leisure time, during activity and sleep, putting the society in a sort of state which of global insomnia increase also this societal obsession. The artists would like to transform the exhibition area into a floating space where the displays of videos can be really highlighted to immerse the viewers into a suspended time, where confusion between real and virtual is poetically occurring.

Egement Tuncer lives and works in İstanbul. Currently, he is enrolled in the Proficiency in Art program at Marmara University, Institute of Fine Arts, Painting Dept. The artist mainly works on computer-based visualizations.In particular he explores the relationship between original structures and their digital/physical models through various representation methods.

Vincent Ceraudo is an artist questioning the materiality of moving-images and theirconceptual meanings. At the very heart of his practice occurs the fascination of man to temporarily escape the influence of the body and the real. His works range from videos and films, to installations, photographs, writings and performances, calling into question perception, the constructs of rationalism, culture, and capitalism.
