Myths and Dreams

“Myths and Dreams” is a modest tribute to Anatolia’s infinitely rich cultural patrimony, featuring works by contemporary artists living in this region of the world and about its places with an ancient past or mythological imagery. The exhibition emphasizes that we inhabit a universe of images where yesterday and today come together on one single plane, and that our cultural heritage is not an abstract entity independent of our present. With a particular focus on Anatolia’s memory lane, it allows us to look at the legends as our collective consciousness connecting us to each other.

Two of my works were selected for Myths and Dreams exhibition curated by İpek Yeğinsü. The exhibition was between 5 July- 5 September at Kıraathane 24.

eng. The works titled Symbiosis and Under the Water are following each other. These works focuses on the concept of growth and the progress of time. The thick lines used in the work Symbiosis and the image of the girl who is about to integrate with the water are transformed into a young woman with lines getting thinner in the work Under the Water. Where she releases the creatures belonging to the water that she was bound to in Symbiosis and opens a space for breathing under water. Thus it shows us that it is possible to be free from the past ties and become an individual with the progress of time even the shadows of the dark moments and symbiotic ties still exists within.

tr. Sergilenen Simbiyoz ve Suyun Altı başlıklı işler birbirini takip eden çalışmalardır. Bu çalışmalar büyüme olgusu ve zamanın ilerleyişi üzerine yoğunlaşır. Simbiyoz’da kullanılan kalın çizgiler ve suyla bütünleşmek üzere olan kız çocuğu imgesi Suyun Altı’nda incelen çizgilerle genç bir kadına dönüşür. Simbiyoz’da bağlanmış olduğu suya ait canlıları serbest bırakır ve kendine suyun altında, suyun olmadığı; nefes alabileceği bir alan açar. Böylece karanlık anların ve simbiyotik bağların gölgesi üzerinde kalmış olsa dahi zamanın ilerleyişi ile birlikte kişiyi gerileten bağlardan arınmanın ve birey olabilmenin mümkün olduğunu bize gösterir.

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.
