Exhibited for the first time at the 14th Istanbul Biennial, 'Red/Red' joins the collection of MoMA

Pieces from Aslı Çavuşoğlu’s installation Red/Red (2015), which was made for the 14th Istanbul Biennial, is included in the permanent collection of MoMA - The Museum of Modern Art in New York. Produced with support by SAHA Foundation and Mathaf, Red/Red comprises series of patterns that the artist drew on worn-out papers and handmade notebooks with an inspiration from Armenian miniatures, and by using a specific red pigment traditionally made from an insect known as the Ararat cochineal and found around the Aras River. The pigment’s extraction technique remains largely in oblivion, known only by a few masters.

The whole work was previously on display at Mathaf - Arab Museum of Modern Art for the second time after the biennial, on the occasion of its inclusion into the museum’s collection. Four patterns from the same series that were not exhibited in the biennial will be permanently on view at MoMA.
