Ambiguous Standards Institute, founded by BİLGİ Faculty of Architecture scholars, makes its debut in Europe.
Featuring Cansu Cürgen, Faculty Member at Department of Architecture and Dr. Avşar Gürpınar, Faculty Member at Department of Industrial Design of İstanbul Bilgi University; as well as artists, designers and scholars including Hazal Kırıkçı, Mete Godollar, Ali Rıza Atakan Gür, Havvanur Sönmez, Merve Şen, Selçuk Artut, Gökçe Akçelik and Koray Özgen, the Ambiguous Standards Institute (ASI) will participate in Luma Days with its thematic crates.
Exhibiting all its works carried out since the date of its foundation at 4th Istanbul Design Biennial, which was held by Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts (İKSV) in November 2018 and which was curated by Jan Boelen, MSE designed and produced thematic crates for the Scales School at Pera Musuem, which give references to various fields such as food, communication and music. All crates aim to start a discussion about their themes by means of objects, visuals and texts.
This time, MSE will showcase the same works for the art-lovers at Luma Days, held by the Luma Foundation, one of the leading sponsors of art and design in Europe. Having been produced by MSE with references to ambiguous standards of food, duration, tune, portion, over-specification and unicodification, the crates will be exhibited at Parc des Ateliers in Arles, located by the Mediterranean shore of Southern France, until 26 May 2019.
Organized for the 3rd time, under the theme of "togetherness", Luma Days will feature many events to be participated by designers, artists and thinkers such as Olafur Eliasson, Etel Adnan, Richard Sennett, Julia Marchand, Hans Ulrich Obrist and Marianna Simnett.
