Limbs Unknown / Solo Show

Curated by Marcus Graf my latest solo show was at
Büyükdere 35 between 26 September- 10 November 2018

eng In this world, where we have difficulty in understanding how the time passes, the troubles we suddenly feel, and the anxieties we develop with the feeling of dread triggered by the efforts for finding a place in life are the concepts the exhibition “Limbs Unknown” deals with. Baysan Yüksel’s insight, “survival mechanisms we develop during the evolutionary process is triggered unexpectedly, and we become our enemy” constitutes the conceptual frame of the exhibition. Paintings resembling the sequences from dark tales, and the projection of personal and social face downs are described with an octopus, a species who has complete different feelings than humans. The artist, associating the flexible and polydactyl anatomy of the octopus with the unknown feelings, correlates temporary feelings with the wind, whereas linking fragility with the water. The exhibition titled “Limbs Unknown” centers upon the state of astonishment triggered by the anxieties.

The exhibition focuses on making the viewers remember and feel the short moments where the emotional burden is felt as a result of the triggered unknown and untraceable anxieties by freezing them. 

tr Zamanın nasıl akıp gittiğini anlamakta zorlandığımız bu dünyada aniden içimize doğan sıkıntılar, hayatta yer bulma çabalarının tetiklediği dehşet duygusu ile büyüttüğümüz kaygılar ”Bilinmeyen Uzuvlar” adlı sergide Baysan Yüksel tarafından “Evrimsel süreçte geliştirdiğimiz hayatta kalma mekanizmaları, tuhaf anlarda tetiklenip bizi kendi kendimizin düşmanı haline getirebiliyor.” İçgörüsüyle” ele alınıyor. Karanlık masalların sekanslarını andıran pentürler, bireysel ve toplumsal yüzleşmelerin iz düşümü. Bu duyguları, insana en uzak türlerden biri olan ahtapot figürüyle betimliyor. Esnek ve çok uzuvlu anatomiye sahip olan ahtapot, yaşadığımız bu hislerin değişkenliğini ve bilinmezliğini sembolize ediyor. Rüzgar ile duyguların uçuculuğunu, su ile kırılganlığı anlatıyor. Yaşanılan kaygılardan dolayı oluşan donakalma anına vurgu yapıyor.

Bilinmeyen, izi sürülemeyen bir kaygı tetiklendiğinde oluşan duygu yükünün hissedildiği mikro saniyelik anları dondurarak izleyiciye yeniden hatırlatmaya ve hissettirmeye odaklanıyor.

derler ki

There is a gathering of the storytellers at Mardin Museum between 2-8 October.

I made a tapestry for the exhibition derler ki (they say so) which will be exhibited on both sides. Exhibition focuses on the inner pains of the participants. My work is called limbs unknown. Which is a subject I’ve been working on lately. I will post more works about that.

Here are photos from my work and process of the tapestry.
