Hundred and one plates

Hundred ceramic plates, having the same origin and having much in common yet, treasuring individuality. In a scene occurring together in space and time, tension between the whole and the part invites us to look past the obvious. Simple and ordinary forms, shapes and methods are loaded with details of the units deepening the sense of collectiveness yet celebrating the uniqueness and importance of each individual part. Deconstructing the total through layering, repetition and togetherness respects the details and gives it further life and function past being a part of a whole.

The creation of a parallel revolutionary life drama out of simple and obvious structures is manifested through unseen control over the parts as well as the whole. In this exhibition, continuous defying of the normal by manipulating details to create value and life to imaginary creatures rise. Weaving the distinctive details of each piece into one entity disguising the differences yet declaring them very harmoniously gives the work a philosophical approach that reveals well tuned view of the human drama.

Extending on previous work and exhibitions, the restless digging of the essence of living details and miniatures take a prime position. This is shown in a unique expressive use of techniques and materials. The use of traditional ways of building forms and finishing them was evident. Gold on plates as traditional as it sounds is given a whole new dimension where it continues defying the norms. Moreover, repetition of infinite circular shapes creates sequences and layers that are connected as well as separated. The circle is not a mere circle and a plate is not all of the plates. This exhibition shares a dynamic, experimental and rebellious self in a quest to express humanity.
