Hasan Pehlevan

Formicarium

Between November 18 and December 15, Pg Art Gallery presents Hasan Pehlevan’s solo exhibition titled Formicarium. In this exhibition named after the Latin word for “habitat (carium) of ants (formi)”, Pehlevan adapts formicarium, a space designed to observe and explore the behavior of ant colonies, into the human habitat and ways of living. The exhibition investigates issues of urban renewal, habitation, destruction, and cultural migration on the basis of basic modes of living. Also in his recent project “Fikirtepe Intervention,” Pehlevan brings together the frescos, the stones and “objects from excavation sites” in areas of urban renewal, along with their videos and images.
