Curatorial Walk & Talk: Saša Nabergoj and participants from Izmir
Wednesday, May 21, 2014, at 19.00
Austro-Turk Tobacco Warehouse, Izmir

Panel Discussion: Deep Blue Field Work
Speakers: Annick Bureaud (FR), Robertina Šebjanič (SI), Betül Bardakcı (TR), Guzel Yucel Gier (TR), Uğur Engin Deniz (TR), Saša Nabergoj (SI)
Thursday, 22 May, 2014, at 5 pm
Austro-Turk Tobacco Warehouse, 4th floor, Izmir

PORTIZMIR3, Triennial for Contemporary Art, aspires to provide a contextual framework for diverse, participative practices by exploring new perspectives on the themes, working methods and processes developed in the realm of contemporary art.

Curated by Saša Nabergoj (SI) PORTIZMIR3 is structured more as a process then a single event, all coming together in the frame of two public manifestations: Archive Visualized (bringing together all the diverse activities of five Field Works: collaborative research and production groups of artists, scientists,…) and Exhibition in the four floors of a post-industrial empty space of ex tobacco warehouse in the center of Izmir, Turkish third biggest city.

With Curatorial Walk & Talk Saša Nabergoj is preparing a guided tour around Exhibition and Archive Visualised to present the projects, but also discuss the process of collaborative working and its potentials. She will be joined by Izmir based artists, scientists, academics, students who have been part of complex activities of triennial.

Deep Blue Field Work was composed of a dozen of individuals (artists, scientists, engineers…) that put the sea (and Izmir bay) in the foreground of their collaborative work. What started as individualized sets of knowledge from artists and scientists became an active ground for debates, experiments and research trips. After six weeks of collaborative research, the team found entirely new ways of engaging with the Izmir bay. The resulting installation of synthesized experiences includes a special edition of salted chocolate, article about jellyfish (Aurelia Aurita), coastal area photography, visual records of seismic and sonic maps, and microscopic and underwater recordings.

The Panel Discussion will present different points of view on the topic of the collaborative research inside of the field of art and science. As the Field Works were created in order to show how strategies and tactics that artists develop within their practices, we can say that this is representing a valuable contribution to a change in thought and lead to changes in the prevailing general modus operandi in shifting into the area of collaborative research in the science and arts practice.

Cordially invited!
