C.A.M. Gallery / Akaretler hosts Murat Germen’s Muta-morphosis at 17 November – 17 December 2011.
The concept of “muta-morphosis”, a combination of the notions of mutation and metamorphosis, and the connected artwork series was obtained by reducing expansive images on the horizontal axis. This compression points to the dynamics between the various urban components that can persist and the ones that vanish following the urban growth supported by capital and based on profit. The visual urban result obtained after this contraction process points to the much discussed notion of evolution, where stronger components of existence survive the others after a natural selection process and change the course of life.
The lack of a single perspectival structure due to multiplicity of perspectives after panoramic imaging, can be linked to Ottoman miniatures, which in turn, connects the global contemporary representation to its local traditional counterpart.
