Pi Artworks Galatasaray
Till 30 October 2011

Pi Artworks Galatasaray hosts Susan Hefuna: Istanbul, a solo exhibition. This is Hefuna’s first appearance at Istanbul.

Susan Hefuna’s work reflects experiences in-between cultures, dealing with cross-cultural codes; she constantly plays at what images mean and how they work, creating dream-like spaces where viewers can attach a wide array of significances to indicators of time and location. Hefuna hijacks the viewer beyond space and time, and from a taste of the undetectable, generates an arrangement of a direction of sorts. The lattices and correlations made on paper trace a journey, each line a new course.

Pi Artworks will exhibit several series of new drawings the artist created during her residency in Istanbul in 2011 reflecting her personal experiences and inspirations by the spirit of the city Istanbul and Architectural relationships between Istanbul and Cairo.

In addition to the Istanbul drawings new sculptural works made in Cairo will be on display.
Susan Hefuna works in several medias such as drawing, installation, photography, video and performance. Susan Hefuna has exhibited widely at international institutions such as the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Townhouse Gallery, Cairo; The Third Line, Dubai; Galerie Volker Diehl, Berlin; Kunstmuseum, Thun, Switzerland; Galerie Grita Insam, Vienna, Austria; Fare Mondi, 53rd Venice Biennial, Italy; Seville Biennial, Spain; New Museum, New York, USA; 2nd Riwaq Biennale, Palestine; 9th Sharjah Biennial, UAE; The Louvre, Paris, France; National Gallery, Cape Town, South Africa.
