International artist Kutluğ Ataman has an exhibition in San Francisco titled "Marching to the Beat" with the sound installation "Hypothalamus." The work in which Ataman compiled sounds from his film "Forbidden Planet," whose filming continues in several places around the world, can be visited at the Jessica Silverman Gallery till Aug. 26.
Artist and director Ataman compiled the sounds of "Forbidden Planet" for the sound installation titled "Hypothalamus." "Hypothalamus," which takes place in the exhibition titled "Marching to the Beat" in the Jessica Silverman Gallery, is comprised of the sounds taken from Ataman's shootings in Japan, South Korea, Philippines, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Cambodia, India, Turkey, and Italy.
Founding a You Tube channel called "WitchTV" in the previous months, Ataman shares his work without any charge or censor to present art freely. "Hypothalamus" is also open to visit on the internet page of the Jessica Silverman Gallery, which has the same approach, and it can be downloaded free from the link: jessicasilvermangallery.com/current
Explaining his sound installation, Ataman said: "Modern art produces art in all existing courses by using all materials. Installation art uses everything that we have used and seen in life again and gives new meanings to them. In the same way, sound installation also produces new perceptions and meanings by using sounds out of their usual meanings."
The exhibition "Marching to the Beat," in which "Hypothalamus" also takes place, emphasizes that the energy and joy of uniting in the digital world shouldn't be ignored. The exhibition analyzing human body, community, and choreography comprises performance, video and sound records along with paintings, photographs and sculptures. Aiming to be an antidote to the othering by the global world, the exhibition features works by 27 artists from various countries.
The "Marching to the Beat" exhibition is open until Aug. 26 at the Jessica Silverman Gallery in San Francisco.
