Installation of “Stephen Chambers”


Pera Museum is pleased to announce its new spring exhibition Stephen Chambers: The Big Country and Other Stories. The exhibition, curated by Edith Devaney, Curator of Contemporary Projects at the Royal Academy of Arts, London, presents a survey of Stephen Chambers’ painting and graphic works, shown alongside his vast multi-part print, The Big Country.

This selection seeks to explore the origins of The Big Country (2012), demonstrating that its development is firmly rooted in the artist’s past practice and deeply indebted to the European tradition of art. The sense of a story being told is a feature of many of Chambers’ works, and writings are often a stimulus for this, as seen in Chambers’ Flemish Proverbs series, which are also exhibited.

We share some photographs of the installation process of Stephen Chambers below…
