Artist Burçak Bingöl and literary critic and writer Fatih Altuğ will have a conversation based on Tanpınar's Istanbul and discuss the interactions between the city, surfaces and literature in terms of their transformative effect on each other. They will explore the layers of time that bring forth the city's unique texture and perception by tracing the words frequently used by Tanpınar. They will talk about how Bingöl interprets this literary sensibility through ceramics and how she translates a sense of past time into clay material.

Born in Görele, raised in Ankara, Burcak Bingol has completed her art education on PhD level in the Fine Arts Faculty at Hacettepe University, Ankara. She also completed programs on Music at Ankara State Conservatory between 1985-91 and on Photography at New School, New York in 2009. She realized eight solo shows in New York, Ankara, Istanbul and Berlin and was part of many group shows in Turkey and abroad, including the 15th Istanbul Biennial, A Good Neighbour. As a curator, she organized four exhibitions in Ankara and Istanbul. Within this culturally and personally charged scope of examination, her works emerge through a constant re-working of images, objects and forms, converging in a repetitive act where fiction and failure merge. As such, their architectural, sensorial and conceptual relations to space open up a research field of visual exploration.
