Cesare Brandi, the pioneer of conservation in modern theory, advocated the preservation of works of art.
“Conservation is the methodological moment of transferring the natural structure, double polarity, aesthetic and historical double future of the work of art”
He defined it by saying.(1977)
In modern theory and practice; Conservation is evaluated from two different perspectives: restoration and preventive conservation.
preventive conservation; The aging of the works is defined as the measures and actions taken without deteriorating their historical and artistic value with the aim of avoiding the damages that may occur through environmental conditions and consolidating the collections.
Restoration, on the other hand, is the actions and practices taken to improve and stabilize works with appropriate methods and materials. At the same time, while this process is being done, it is aimed to highlight the value of the work of art in every aspect. Every action is based on the principle of reversibility of materials and methods, thereby improving the condition of the work of art and preserving its historical and artistic integrity.
Our team consists of experienced and qualified conservators.
We provide conservation from a wide variety of aspects;
– status reporting for artworks and collections
-preventive protection for works of art and collections (storage / exhibition areas, climate box design, safe transport and hanging)
-restoration of arts and collections (leveling damage and preserving physical condition, surface cleaning, varnish removal, priming, retouching, frame restoration)
