TOWNSMEN

Stricken by the contradictive nature of everyday life on the streets of Paris – which the artist believes to be Europe’s most ambivalent city, with the project TOWNSMEN set as a unifying fabric throughout her time of artist-residency there, Elena Nazarova takes on two very contrasting routes
of artistic exploration, research, and representation, which deepen as she leaps into the city’s darker corners and nightlife, and eventually lead her to explore possibilities for the perfect object to protest the status quo while pleasing the viewer simultaneously.

SHOWTIME

Live from CONTEMPORARY ISTANBUL 2022

 Curated by Marcus Graf, SHOWTIME goes beyond the traditional exhibition manners at an art fair to respond to the high-speed of change at the fair. It also responds to the dynamism of Istanbul and the permanent flux of contemporary art.

Every hour, one artwork will be displayed on the outer main wall of the gallery’s booth in a stage-like manner.
