THE INVITATIONAL SOLO PROJECT FAIR FOR CONTEMPORARY ART.
MARCH 1–5, 2017
PIER 90, NEW YORK
İrfan Önürmen Booth C06
C24 Gallery is pleased to present İrfan Önürmen at Volta NY 2017. In a site specific installation, Önürmen reveals the permeable elements of his work created in different media emphasizing the layering process he uses in his practice. The differing components in this installation are accentuated by the varying subject matter drawing attention to the formal and conceptual associations within the artist’s various periods. Sometimes these relations are beside one another as well as being back-to-back, but always recycling. The sense of disruption reflected from ‘’Diffusion’’ is a reference to the dividing and dissolving psychology of both the artist and the society he’s living in. The installation opens a discussion of the dialectical relationship concerning the process of artistic productios in all its bifurcations, integrations and diffusions.
İrfan Önürmen’s work reveals the relationships and discrepancies between a personal and a public experience through the lens of contemporary media. Önürmen addresses the impact of mass media on the human experience and its visual representation.
VOLTA NY is the invitational fair of solo artist projects and is the American incarnation of the original Basel VOLTA show, which was founded in 2005 by three art dealers as a fair "by galleries, for galleries". 2017 celebrates it's decade edition of this unique international, contemporary art fair.
VOLTA NY showcases relevant contemporary art positions from emerging international artists, from cutting-edge trendsetters to next year’s rising stars. The approachable solo-booth format is both accessible to younger art-lovers and beloved by seasoned collectors alike. By spotlighting artists through primarily solo projects, VOLTA NY refocuses the art fair experience back to its most fundamental point: the artists and their works.
