Maja Weyermann, a Swiss artist based in Berlin will present her first solo show in Istanbul in SANATORIUM. In the exhibition, Weyermann‘s video works from the series of „Real-time-nomads“ and “About Paradise“ and stills from these videos as well as an excerpt of her series „The Miller House and a slice of cake - or - life shortly before disaster“ will be presented.
All three work groups have the same focus of interest which is the connection between perception and representation of space. The artist understands SPACE as a result of social relationships, arising from the acts of individuals or groups and IMAGES as genuinely social, not only because they are created in a given social context, but also because this very context could not be constituted without the production of images.
