A Horn in The Neck is an effort to collectively negotiate individual practices. It was launched by simple premise (as most of these things often are) Dürer's Rhinoceros. German painter and printmaker Albercht Dürer's woodcut from 1515 is based on a written description and a brief sketch by another artist. Dürer placed a small twisted horn on the animal's back and gave it scaly legs. This woodcut then become the basis for other artists representations of the rhinoceros. Claiming this speculative space between reality and representation both as a material and framework, the artists worked with the fragmented perspectives, linear and fractal narratives, landscapes as sites of reproduction, hierarchies of seeing, and processes of naturalizations. A horn in the neck is an exhibition of works by Hilal Güler, Merve Ünsal, İpek Burçak Ayfer Karabıyık and Andara Shastika. Exhibition space designed by Berk Asal (ON/OFF)
