For the first MAK NITE Lab of 2013, artist Cevdet Erek (*1974 in Istanbul) has developed a site-specific performance concept.
Erek has combined elements of his 2012 Nam June Paik Award-winning work SSS Shore Scene Soundtrack, in which he recreates
the entire spectrum of noisy marine sounds as heard from the seaside, with drum rhythms from his dOCUMENTA (13) installation
Room of Rhythms. Ereks performance will take place in his installation Re-Illuminationconceived for the MAK exhibition SIGNS TAKEN IN WONDER. Searching for Contemporary Istanbulin the MAKs central exhibition hall, where the artist will also involve the insulated echo in both a talk and
a Q&A session.An event accompanying SIGNS TAKEN IN WONDER. Searching for Contemporary Istanbul (23 January21 April 2013, MAK Exhibition Hall)This exhibition sketches out a narrative that covers various aspects of culture, history and everyday life in Istanbul, one
of the worlds largest metropolises, from a contemporary perspective.Curator Marlies Wirth
