Anna Laudel Düsseldorf presents multidisciplinary artist Hayal İncedoğan’s solo exhibition The Century of Loneliness Vol. I between January 19–March 10, 2023.

The exhibition involves artworks consisting of different techniques that range from canvas paintings and sound videos to neon installations, and mirror products. Curated by Ekrem Yalçındağ, the exhibition is designed with holistic dialogues as reflections that develop around the concept of motives and carry the traces of mostly conceptual thinking. 

As the title indicates,The Century of Loneliness Vol. I is the first part of a two-step exhibition series. The artist depicts a period of this century in a different way by addressing the political, economic, sociological and psychological transformations related to the impact of the events that have taken place both in Turkey and in the world since the beginning of the current century. 

The exhibition centers around a comparative interpretation and a holistic language related to the concepts of motif, leitmotif, and nostalgia, including literature, music, and cinematic references.

The artist invites visitors to a multi-layered investigation with readings inspired by Romanticism, Classicism, Baroque music, philosophy, literature, and art history, in order to demonstrate the path of art practice from today to the past. The exhibition offers a new perspective of the 21st century with an aim to establish multidisciplinary dialogues.

Inspired by a wide spectrum, ranging from the individual to the collective, and from politics to psychology; the exhibition revisits many issues that have been ignored and left out of the main arteries of the century in different contexts. 

Hayal İncedoğan's first solo exhibition in Germany, The Century of Loneliness Vol. I can be visited at Anna Laudel Düsseldorf until March 10, 2023.
