> DESCRIPTION

İstanbul Modern is pleased to present the first ever retrospective in Turkey of the internationally acclaimed artist Kutluğ Ataman. The Enemy Inside Me exhibition brings together Ataman’s milestone videos and installations.

Ataman first made his mark in contemporary art with his contribution to the 1997 International İstanbul Biennial. Subsequently, he pursued a successful international career exhibiting in distinguished museums and participating in biennials around the world. The prestigious awards he has obtained, books about his oeuvre and the social and political consciousness of his works have earned him a well-deserved reputation in Turkish art circles. However, he has, to date, exhibited very few of his works in Turkey. This exhibition at İstanbul Modern is designed as a mid-career retrospective to celebrate the homecoming of the İstanbul-born artist after an international career spanning thirteen years.

The Enemy Inside Me presents 11 major works including Women Who Wear Wigs (1999), Never My Soul (2001), It’s a Vicious Circle (2002), 99 Names (2002), The 4 Seasons of Veronica Read (2002), Stefan’s Room (2004), Testimony (2006), Paradise (2006), Turkish Delight (2007), fff (2006-9), along with a new work never before seen in Europe, Beggars (2010), co-commissioned by Thomas Dane Gallery and the 29th Bienal de São Paulo, 2010.
