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.

vanilya kışı / the story behind the book

eng In December 2016 we went to Maşukiye, a small town by the mountains with an amazing view of the lake Sapanca with my author friend Zeynep Alpaslan. We both were having difficult times and for a week there we sat by the fire talk about life, universe and everything else. We draw, wrote poems and get back to our homes is Istanbul. Zeynep, later was influenced highly from the nature of Maşukiye and she wrote haiku poems. Final Kultur Sanat Publishing loved the poems and wanted to publish it and I would be the illustrator of the book. On the following summer we went back to Masukiye and I illustrated the poems there. This time we were full of joy and hope. Diffucult times were passed and they became art. The book was loved so much that the first edition was sold out after three months and had it’s second edition. Here is the process of creating this beautiful book.

tr Zeynep Alpaslan’ın yazdığı benim resimlediğim Final Kültür Sanat Yayınlarından çıkan Vanilya Kışı’nın çok güzel bir hikayesi var. Zeynep’in sonsözde de anlattığı gibi 2016 yılının Aralık ayında ikimiz de hayatımızın zor bir döneminden geçerken biraz rahatlamak için Maşukiye’ye gitmemizle başladı her şey. Gündüzleri bahçede dolaşıyor, geceleri birbirimize öyküler anlatıyor, şiirler yazıyor, resimler yapıyorduk. Daha sonra ikimiz de İstanbul’daki evlerimize döndük. Zeynep Maşukiye’nin doğasından o kadar etkilenmişti ki duygularını harika haiku şiirler olarak yazdı. Ardından Final Kültür Sanat Yayınları kitabı yayınlamak istedi ve çizimlerini de ben yapacaktım. Bu defa yaz mevsiminin sonlarında ikimiz beraber tekrar Maşukiye’ye gittik ve ben kitabın illüstrasyonları orada açık havada yaptım. İkimiz de neşeli, umutlu ve hevesliydik.  Kitap o kadar sevildi ki ilk üç ay içinde ilk baskısı tükendi ve ikinci baskıyı yaptı. Bu kitabın yayınlanmasında emeği geçen herkese içten teşekkürlerimi sunarım.

Dec 2016, Maşukiye
