Ebru Alpagut exhibits her second solo exhibition “I Have a Secret...”at C.A.M Gallery/ Akaretler, between 15 October- 13 November 2011.

It is a secret hard to carry around that leaves a scar and becomes a taboo, that is not talked about even most of us pass through, that leaves us with the label -“guilty”- and somehow we externalize.

Details marked by colors on a black and white time screen, suppressed memories pushed towards the darkness of subconscious that got scraped to our minds with an image, emerge with Ebru Alpagut’s brushstrokes. She narrates physical, sexual, emotional and psychological abuse by giving several symbolic meanings to the bodies of young women and putting them in diverse characters.

About C.A.M Gallery

C.A.M - standing for Contemporary Art Marketing – Gallery was established in 1992 by Sevil Binat and was one of the first Istanbul galleries exclusively to show the work of contemporary Turkish artists and to chart the trends and concerns of the developing scene. Since 2002 the gallery has been solely managed by Sevil and Levend Binat, and now operates on two different locations: Nişantaşı and Akaretler. The gallery actively participates in fairs and exhibitions abroad. The focus of the gallery is on work that is innovative and original , with a stong emphasis on supoorting young artists, and discovering new and vital work.
The gallery has always cultivated and enjoyed close relationships with artists, both painters and those who working in the plastic arts.The multi-disciplinary approach of the artists involved with the gallery reflect the diverse interests of Sevil and Levend Binat. In addition, C.A.M is particulary proud to have been one of the first galleries in Istanbul seiously to show photography.

?As the audience and the appetite for contemporary art has increased in Turkey, C.A.M Gallery has not shied away from exhibiting Works that are often diffucult in content’, says Binat. ?One of the founding princples of the gallery was to educate and to move its audience and clients – as well as to support its artists. As Turkey becomes a serious player in the global art world, the gallery has attempted to remain committed to quality over quantity, to challencing Works over more comfortable ones. The gallery also stongly believes that, aside from their responsibility to their artists and collectors, it must help educate the public about the shifting notions of what art is, helping to cultivate both taste and awarness. And, though the effortsof C.A.M as well as those of many other galleries, Turkey, and Istanbul in particular, is quickly regaining some of its previous status as a creative centre, with Turkish modernism being rediscovered, and contemporary art flourishing.’
