In this exhibition, we will look at the impact that the great invention of the 20th century, the airplane, had on us from the perspective of art. Airplanes, which let people experience unprecedented speed and the feeling of being in the air, have changed people's visions in no small way. In addition, the refined functional beauty of a machine is full of charm as a motif suitable for the new era.
On the other hand, as a sad inevitability, airplanes have been used in warfare from early on. Many of these figures also appear in the war documentary paintings that have been studied in recent years.
Flying is no longer a special experience for us today. This exhibition will provide an opportunity to reconsider the light and shadow that airplanes brought to us through paintings and materials from an era of admiration and surprise for flight.
