Silik İzler Erased Traces



9 Şubat Feb - 10 Mart Mar 2012

Özgül Arslan meets the viewers with her solo exhibition titled “Erased Traces” between the dates 9 February – 10 March at Daire Gallery.

Cleaning, tidying up, organizing, maintaining hygiene of interiors are actions that are usually attributed to women. Özgül Arslan is questioning the equivalence of these actions in art through her new solo exhibition called "Erased Traces". Her starting point is light and colour themes which have important places in art history. In order to do this she reverts the usual method, adding colour, to erasing which is also viewed as a domestic action. Instead of colour, she uses bleach which is generally used for cleaning and hygiene. Her works on cotton velvet fabric gives reference to the past, and draw from the erasing power of light. As such, she singles out an uninvited guest, light, as the erased one.

“Erased Traces” can be viewed at DAİRE between 9 February – 10 March 2012, Tuesday –Saturday, 11 am - 7 pm .
