19 June – 1 September 2013
Galery İlayda in Istanbul, Turkey, is currently showing ‘Themeless/Contactless 3’ , a group exhibition by 10 artists which runs until 1 September 2013.
The exhibition includes paintings, sculpture and installation by Damla Özdemir, Derya Altınel, Elvin Karaaslan, Engin Beyaz, Nurdan Likos, Gazi Sansoy, Gülfidan Özmen, Işıl Ulaşand Özcan Uzkur.
The exhibition reveals the artists’ different points of view, so the show is themeless, allowing them to be unrestricted in the choice of work they display. These are artists who strive to avoid contact with the artificial.
Aysel Alver’s sculptures questions ‘Retro’ style within the context of ‘Beauty-Ugliness’, ‘Fashion’ and ‘Trend’
Damla Özdemir has attracted attention with her three-dimensional collages.
Derya Altınel is trying to get even with ‘modern life’ issues by using ‘stamps’ in her works.
Elvin Karaaslan produces work whose central theme is the concept of perception.
Gazi Sansoy is joining the exhibit with his two parallel series which have rather different visuallanguages and constructs, named as ‘Faceless’ and ‘Miniature’.
We witness the stories of the Işıl Ulaş’s ‘characters’, which come from her childhood and are now reflected in her sculptures and painting.
Nurdan Likos emphasizes the concept of ‘womanhood’ in her works, hitting the road with her own story.
Özcan Uzkur constructs ‘bodies’ using lace.
