Anna Laudel continues its exhibition programme with solo shows of three contemporary artists using different mediums and techniques. Three solo exhibitions will showcase In the Shade of Time by Hayal İncedoğan, Selfie by Fırat Neziroğlu and SYZYGY by Halil Vurucuoğlu between November 26, 2019 and January 19, 2020. 

Opened on November 26, the exhibitions focus on compelling themes diverging from botanical sciences to the dichotomy and rediscovery of life. 

Hayal İncedoğan: In the Shade of Time 
Presenting a conceptual depth with her versatile productions, Hayal İncedoğan presents the collateral aspects of time, space and memory perception spectacularly in her exhibition In the Shade of Time. The exhibition developed within a system of archiving plants, expressed with the term ‘herbarium’ in botanical science, and brings a new dimension and meaning in the minds of the audience by combining today’s visual experiences and memory. The exhibition narrates the approach of time through works from various disciplines in terms of perspective. The artist, who has connotations from the previous exhibitions, comes up with a new subject and material for each project. By taking this method as a principle, she pushes her limits. 

Born in Izmir, the artist completed her undergraduate and master studies at the Painting Department of the Faculty of Fine Arts at Dokuz Eylül University. She still continues her doctoral studies in the same faculty in the Department of Art and Design and works as an academician. Her works so far have been shown in various museums and institutions in countries. Also, she has artworks in many corporate and private collections. The artist continues her works in domestic and international projects.

Fırat Neziroğlu: Selfie 
Fırat Neziroğlu transforms the traditional weaving form, which is one of the oldest arts known in Anatolia, into a unique contemporary weaving technique. Neziroğlu, which gives a different perspective to the classical weaving tradition with using the fish line for the first time in weaving, attracted great attention with patented special weaving technique of his own name. The Selfie exhibition questions the difference between the “selfie” image and the “weaved selfie” image which was accomplished in 600 hours. The exhibition invites the audience to be human with all their experience and to rediscover life by pulling out the monotony. 

Born in 1981 in İzmir, Fırat Neziroğlu studied at Dokuz Eylül University, Institute of Fine Arts, Department of Textile and Fashion Design. He continues his doctoral studies in the same department and works as a research assistant. He exhibited fabric collections in Istanbul, Como, Munich, Rome, Maniago, London and Paris and has been awarded first and second prize in many national and international competitions. Fırat Neziroğlu’s successful works have enabled him to be invited to many official events abroad for private production. He still lives and works in İzmir.

Halil Vurucuoğlu: SYZYGY
Standing out with his use of different materials and unique techniques in his well-known stencil-drawings and paper-cutting works with spray, Halil Vurucuoğlu re-constructs the journey to the depths of the subconscious mind with a picturesque narration in his solo exhibition titled SYZYGY. Vurucuoğlu’s re-constructed journey lets the audience to discover their inner world in order to make sense of the external world and frees them from the pressure.

Born in 1984, Halil Vurucuoğlu graduated from Dokuz Eylül University, Fine Arts Faculty Department of Painting in 2007. He has had seven solo exhibitions in total, including his first solo exhibition in 2008, titled Bamboo, and one in Bremen. Participated in many fairs and group exhibitions in Turkey and abroad, Vurucuoğlu lives and works in Istanbul.

The exhibitions of Hayal İncedoğan, Fırat Neziroğlu, and Halil Vurucuoğlu can be seen at Anna Laudel in Istanbul until January 19, 2020.
