Event description
Opening party of digital art exhibition 'Inside the Cistern' in an underground venue at Campo de Ourique. Artist: Özge Topçu

About this event

Hypercube Project Space is hosting its founder and artist Özge Topçu’ s first solo exhibition in Portugal. In her exhibition ‘Inside the Cistern’, Özge transforms her art studio into an underground water reservoir in an experimental way. To do so, she transports virtually a cistern from the historical area of Istanbul to the centre of Lisbon.

The exhibition, ‘Inside the Cistern’ adopts an approach that differs from conventional art shows. It is an open work-in-progress exhibition. Ozge, in the exhibition, invites her audience to be part of her journey through their participation in various public programs during the exhibition period.

Özge uses experimental art methods that employ specific digital characteristics of NFTs to render them visible. As such the ‘Inside the Cistern’ exhibition attempts to integrate our physical existence with the virtual.

Opening event will coincide with ArCo and Just LX international art fairs in Lisbon so please don't forget to mark your calendar to visit Özge' s solo exhibition and sign up for the upcoming public programs.

In this opening event, we invite you to join us for a glass of wine and see the art-tech exhibition 'Inside the Cistern' at Hypercube Space.
