Cetveller ve Ritim Çalışmaları Amsterdam’da Stedelijk Müzesi koleksiyon bölümünde sergilenmeye başlanmış. 2011’de burada (İstanbul) sergilendiği haline çok yakın, masa az değişik, beyaz ve de 2011’de (grup sergisinin şartlarından (ya da tam ikna edemediğimden) dolayı) gösterilemeyen dairesel hafta ve ritim 1 cetvellerine ait sesler de duvarda. Arka duvarda Sol LeWitt’in bol renkli 1084 numaralı duvar çizimi var, o sanırım hep orada duruyor. Fotografları Müze’den Bart Rutten cep telefonuyla çekmiş, daha detaylı ve kalitelileri gelince buraya yerleşirler.

Cetvelleri görmeyen veya hatırlamak isteyenler için 2011’deki sergilemeye ait cetveller katalogu burada  pdf: cevdet erek cetveller ve ritim rulers and rhythm (o zaman belgelemede bana yardım eden özgür atlagan ve elif akçay’a tekrar teşekkür ve selam).

Bu arada, bu cetvellerin bazıları, bu katalogdaki masanın 1/2’si, ve de başka bir sürü irili ufaklı şey şu an İstanbul Modern’de açık olan Çok Sesli adlı sergide görülebilir. Bunun için ayrı bir posta, önümüzdeki günlerde. Bu postaya da zaman buldukça bir kaç ekleme yapılacak.


english, translated by duygu

The Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam is now exhibiting “Rulers and Rhythm Studies” as part of their collection display. This presentation is very much similar to when the work was installed for the first time in Istanbul; the table is a little different, it is white, and in addition, sound pieces of Circular Week and Rhythm 1 are also included on the wall (which, either due to the physical conditions of a group exhibition or because I wasn’t convincing enough, were not exhibited then). On the wall in the back is Sol LeWitt’s colorful wall drawing no:1084, I believe that it is permanent. The photos are taken by Bart Rutten with a cell phone, and they will be replaced when there are better and more detailed ones available.

For those who haven’t seen the rulers or want to see them again, visit the pdf link here: cevdet erek cetveller ve ritim rulers and rhythm (a nod and thank you to özgür atlagan and elif akçay who helped me with the documentation of the work).

Also, some of the rulers, half of the table shown in the pdf and a few other things are currently on view at İstanbul Modern, as part of the exhibition Plurivocality. Another post about this will follow in the next few days. Additions to this very post will be made as well.
