I Have Never Been Here

Galeri Nev İstanbul is participating in the first edition of Istanbul Gallery Week (IGW), which brings together the contemporary art galleries in Istanbul. The event in which Aras Seddigh invites Ömer İpekçi to the gallery space, an experience that allows transitions between senses by establishing connections between visual arts, writing and olfactory arts is predicted.  Taking its name from a quote in Ben Lerner’s book, Leaving the Atocha Station, the phrase I Have Never Been Here connotes the invisibilty and volatility, which are the main features of the scent. Also by pointing out the idea of an absence, the event’s title also reminds the fact that unlike visual and audio elements, the scent is usually left behind in the artistic production and experience. The production processes of an artist and a perfumer intertwined through the experience of sharing the same atelier, can be read from Seddigh’s painting titled N.99 which is displayed in the gallery space.
