Art Talk: Zeynep Gürler & Melis Golar

Bilsart presents Zeynep Gürler’s exhibition entitled “There” between May 15 – May 25, 2024.

Within the scope of Gürler’s project called “There”, which she designed based on the question of what kind of a part of the ‘nature’ we live in, she presents a section of her walking experience in Düzce since September 2023, following the traces of the relationships established with plants, and the distances between us and ‘nature’. And reflects the artist’s intellectual process on the possibilities of contact.

In the exhibition, which includes a series of drawings called Shells as well as the artist’s videos and photographs, she compares these forms, which he embodies on the ways of existence in precarious times, with the photographs of her ‘entangled bank’ with the intertwined stories of the geography in which her lives. She takes us through blurred borders with the photographs showing both the nature and human sides of destruction.

“There” is funded by CultureCIVIC: Culture and Arts Support Programme, a European Union project.
