Dirimart Nişantaşı opened the new season on September 21, featuring Melike Abasıyanık Kurtiç. One of the most prominent woman artists of Turkey, Melike Abasıyanık Kurtiç will be opening a solo show for the first time after a long while. For many years, the artist created authentic works that aim to touch mankind via the nature, through the use of sea urchins and seaweed; this focus is maintained in this exhibition. Another characteristic of the oeuvres presented in a conceptual integrity is that they are produced using materials that are not limited to ceramics, such as rice paper, and a wide range of techniques, including photography, collage and fine art print.
Haluk Akakçe’s new work explores the concept of dharma, or the cosmic order, through the relationship between the physical and spiritual worlds, and in particular how our rapidly evolving society interacts with these realms. Channeling the effervescence of dream states as gatekeepers to the subconscious, Akakçe creates work that speaks to the core of human existence.
