Exhibition
Uninvited

Curator: Levent Çalıkoğlu

Artist: Selma Gürbüz

The dialectical frontier between “outside” and “inside” has become a thing of the past. Infiltration, supersession, simulation, and shapeshifting images create bizarre layers of memory. A symbol that appears uninvitedly interrupts social, cultural, economic, subconscious paths and when appopriate, connects these different flows to one another. This exhibition brings together uninvited information, forms and archetypes, all  of which it hosts by visually recreating them over and over again while also beginning to disavow their originals, and which, ranging from myths and legends to the elegance of iconic stances as far as fashion magazines and form the divine discord in the eyes and sight-lines of miniatures to the narratives entrenched by feminist art, are seemingly remote from one another. Throughout thjese compositions there wends a refined language of narration which sometimes is invested with an untamed emptiness by virtue of the whole vs. past relationships of painting and sculğture and sometimes appears to stitch its elements together like a patchwork quilt by means of a stripped-down vernacular of form. In Selma Gürbüz’s work, we find the melancholy effects of an ersatz imagnination that reveals a fable-like core as much as it is the dominant, excessively meaning*charged language of color and form of pop culture.
