'GAIA HAS A THOUSAND NAMES' at ELGIZ MUSEUM curated by Tara Londi
GAIA HAS A THOUSAND NAMES
Elgiz Museum hosts the exhibition curated by Tara Londi, “Gaia Has a Thousand Names”, which is included in the program of collateral events of the 16th edition of the Istanbul Biennial ‘The Seventh Continent’. The exhibition, that is realized in collaboration with the Italian Cultural Institute, can be visited at the Elgiz Museum between dates of 14 September-12 October 2019.
Through the works of 10 international artists, including a selection from the prestigious Elgiz Collection, the exhibition traces the evolution of planet earth’s association with a female goddess from prehistoric times to this day, and the implications of women’s identification with nature as the powerful binary association of men and culture. It explores how the feminization of nature and the naturalization of women, persisted throughout culture saturating our perceptions of both.
