B.C. Pop Art | December 5 – January 5

Yusuf Aygeç's first solo show 'B.C. Pop Art' is opening at C.A.M. Gallery. Through the idea of 'If it were me…' the artist forms a bond between the 'classic/cult figure' and 'present time' without detaching the figures from their own eras.

Throughout its development and transformation, art has been interrupted and ruined in certain periods during history due to religious and political impacts. The question is 'what kind of works would emerge if the artists were not forced to paint the royal families or the church?' The artist is coding certain images of pop culture into the popular figures of art history/old masters, while claiming that there is no difference among the people of past and present time. The ego, pretense and materialism; remain unchanged. The stories of the works created by the thought of 'how would the characters of the past desire to live in present time,' establish a link between the past and present while challenging the imaginations of the viewers.


About C.A.M. Gallery

C.A.M. Gallery - standing for Contemporary Art Marketing – was established in 1992 by Sevil Binat. C.A.M. Gallery is one of the first Istanbul galleries that exclusively show the works of contemporary Turkish artists and chart the trends and concerns of the developing scene. The gallery actively participates in fairs and exhibitions abroad. The focus of the gallery is on works that are innovative and original. With a strong emphasis on supporting young artists, C.A.M. Gallery discovers new and vital works. Diversity is one of the foundations that the gallery had embraced. The multi-disciplinary approach, exhibiting a wide range of artists using various mediums, reflects the diverse interests of Sevil Binat. Moreover, C.A.M. is particularly proud to have been one of the first galleries in Istanbul, which exhibits photography. Binat says 'One of the founding principles of the gallery was to educate and to move its audience and clients – as well as to support its artists. The gallery strongly believes that, aside from its responsibility to the artists and collectors, it must help to guide the public through the shifting notions of what art is and to help cultivating both taste and awareness.
