The exhibition Chasing a Coin: Signs, Traces and Stories brings together a selection of Yapı Kredi coin collection and three contemporary art commissions inspired by the coin collection.
Invited in 2013, Hera Büyüktaşçiyan and two other artists selected by Basak Senova, carried out research on the coin collection as well as the general practice of coin collecting.
In her work “From One Hand to Another, From There to Yonder,” consisting of her mechanical sculpture and drawings, Hera Büyüktaşçiyan recalls a significant adulteration incident in the Ottoman history.
