    Beril Ateş, The Unknown Gift

    According to scientists our brains produce the same reaction when we see a good work of art and when we fall in love. In “Eat Play Love” inspired by the movie “Eat Pray Love”, two elements uniting people, namely food and games, join the passion for art. The visitors coming to the upper floor of Eataly for eating or shopping with the question “Is that a Barbie doll under a belljar?” in their eyes, find themselves in the middle of the extraordinary future scenarios Genco Gülan builds through his “alternative glasses” and so the discovery game for the big children begins. Right next to it appear the funny characters of Beril Ateş who creates her works of art through her authentic viewpoint with irony and criticism.

    The dried fruit pulp compositions by Seçil Yaylalı who keeps communication and exchange at the center of her artistic practice,  collages by Cins who expresses himself via “organic” forms reminiscent of flesh and bone inspired from the concept of appetite, paintings by Taşkın Esin diving into an experimental adventure combining acrylic and coffee… These works in which elements appealing to the eye and to the taste coexist, combine the beauty of food with the vitalness of art.

    Beyza Paksın focuses on the imagery of women and the kitsch; the roses’ delicacy and the knife’s sharpness build a striking contrast. Azime Sarıtoprak returns to her childhood with the yellow walls of her elementary school and her napkins ornamented with naive drawings. Göksu Gül declares that she tries her best to express her admiration for nature and humanity, and presents the fun and “appetizing” sculptures she specifically produced for this exhibition, attracting especially children to themselves like a magnet.

    Begüm Mütevellioğlu arranges houses and rooms as windows opening into bizarre landscapes, spaces dedicated to memories and dreams; perhaps some secret gates leading to Sicily’s narrow streets or Tuscany’s fertile vineyards… Finally Baysan Yüksel questions routines, beliefs, traditions, popular culture and consumerism; naive, warm but similarly deconstructivist and critical.

  • Celebrities | Ünlüler

    The exhibition will continue until 30 September at Avantgarde Collection Yalikavak

    Celebrities is an exhibition featuring world reknown personalities and artists that became icons, reinterpreted by artists.

    These famous people become elements of popular culture and set global trends with their appearances, acts and quotes, be it intentionally or unintentionally.

    Genco

    Genco Gulan, 4×4, 2015 and 4 Eyed Marilyn, 2015

    Art50.net artists Ayna, Betül Aytaç, Genco Gülan and Hadra Tanrıverdi present to artlovers some new interpretations of these celebrities in the form of painting, print, serigraphy and photography.

    Ayna uses graffiti and paste-up technique departing from popular quotes and icons, also embedding light in his art through lightboxand neon. He exhibited his works in public spaces outside of Istanbul including Lebanon, Germany and Pakistan, aiming at making the viewers see these reflections in their own lives as well.

    Genco Gülan whose own body frequently becomes part of his art appears before our eyes as Salvador Dali. Reinterpreting celebrities like Marilyn Monroe and Van Gogh with two pairs of eyes he distorts perception and updates our memory by giving new identities to these characters, as in Miki.

    Betül Aytaç creates digital collages and prints them as serigraphies. Looking more closely at the monochrome characters she installs on them as reliefs, one notices that each of their components belongs to another celebrity. Monroe’s lips, Dali’s eyes, David’s body…

    Hadra Tanrıverdi intervenes in the celebrity images that she transforms into non-celebrities. In the two works from the Inner Row series featured in this exhibition she rearranges the portraits of two very well known female artists and renders them ordinary. The sharp lines in her canvases point to the fact that these women are actually like everyone else, although the media treats them as commodities or divinities.

    Art50.net wishes to extend its gratitude to the Avantgarde Collection for their support.

    In its second exhibition, Art50 is showcasing works by 5 rising female artists where they portray unseen stories. “Stories Untold” points out to narratives that cannot be uttered or put into writing, yet can only be expressed through pictures. It also emphasizes the fragility of certain stories and how they lose their meaning when they are trying to be expressed.

    “Stories Untold” invites viewers on a journey where stories that go unnoticed during the hustle of daily life, fairytales that are forgotten due to pressures of reality and many stories that are waiting to be discovered are brought into light.

    Güliz Baydemir, shares unnoticeable views from the cities that she travelled. She depicts each city with colors her own color palette. Her paintings make visible the lively aspects of various venues despite the fact that they do not depict any human figure.

    Ayşegül Karakaş, who portrays nature with an idiosyncratic style, depicts figures that seem to be suspended in time in a pastoral landscape. Figures who are placed in a timeless and location-less nature sometimes appear to be in a journey through time or in the middle of a flight.

    Begüm Mütevellioğlu, known with painting scenes from her daily life with a pronounced pastel palette, portrays female figures in different interior settings. The stories of figures who are shown in their own environment, with their current state of mind are open to interpretation.  The most attention-grabbing aspect of her works are her mesmerizing dominant colors.

    Known with attaching mixed media on canvas, Lale Delibaş opens up doors of a world for us that can only be noticed when looked from up close. Inspired by mythological and philosophical subjects, the artist whispers stories that we can see not only with our eyes, but also perceive with our feelings.

    Melike Kılıç offers frames from a fairytale with her drawings created in a pastoral atmosphere. In the world set at the feet of splendid trees, many a stories are seen from behind the leaves.

    Artists: Ayşegül Karakaş, Begüm Mütevellioğlu, Güliz Baydemir, Lale Delibaş, Melike Kılıç
