Lot Essay

Yerler V belongs to the Places series that Turkish artist Ahmet Elhan has been producing since 2007. Elhan creates these works by combining thousands of frames that he shoots in public spaces such as religious locations, bars, underpasses and schools. He produces these frames by scanning the architectural structure from a fixed point inside, 360 degrees from left to right and 180 degrees from top to bottom with constant angular shifts. In Elhan's work, what matters is not the architectural elements of the selected location, but how the visual plasticity of a distinct architectural mass as a whole is used to transform the panoramic image into a different level where time and space are reconstructed with multiple perspective.
