The 10th Terrace Exhibition titled From Another Hill is on view until November 2018 in the open air terrace space of the Elgiz Museum. The artists participated to the open call via the theme of Istanbul, and the proposals were evaluated by the Advisory Board as usual. Sculptors from different cities such as Kars, Isparta, Eskişehir, Ankara, İzmir and Istanbul took place, bringing a new perception to both locals and outsiders of Istanbul. Each perspective came together on ‘another hill’ of Istanbul; at the Elgiz Museum’s terrace.
The ambiguous borders of Istanbul, its rising skyscrapers and limiting personal spaces, immigrants, the jam and the ‘metropolitan comfort’ are interpreted by artists in a multi-dimensional manner as the city of Istanbul is portrayed as a city that is the ends of many roads as well as possessing its own ways. As these roads are redrawn every day, lack of tranquility is transformed into a feeling of uneasiness each day. Artists correspondingly portray ‘the effort to belong’ to this city as they convey the possibilities of this (be)longing. Its illusioned and familiar sides, and the traces in our collective memory were depicted despite the changes in the city of Istanbul.
