NEWS FROM AROUND THE WORLD | C24 GALLERY IN NEW YORK
C24 Gallery is having an exhibition of Turkish contemporary artist Irfan Önürmen in its venue in New York Chelsea. The exhibition titled Pendulum bears witness to the manifestations of Önürmen’s spiritual states. In this exhibition, the artist oscillates like a pendulum between his inner experience and the traumatic nature of current times. His work explores the dichotomy and discrepancies between personal and public experience as seen through the lens of contemporary media and it’s effects on the human experience.
With a unique aesthetic approach comprised of layering tulle and textile materials, Önürmen creates a mysterious tone in each work that explores the concepts of vulnerability, transparency, fragmentation and depth, in the pursuit of harmony and dissonance. With these themes in mind, the viewer is asked to question what is veiled behind each layer. Dual meanings such as order and chaos emerge in works that are at times sober yet playful. The exhibition will be on view March 3, 2016 through April 23, 2016.
