Güçlü Öztekin exhibit at Rampa
Address: Şair Nedim Caddesi No. 21a, BeşiktaşGüçlü Öztekin, who has previously transformed Rampa’s space using various tools and works of different sizes, now splits the space starkly in half. The works imprisoned in the space relate to each other, referring to Rampa’s architectural structure and the artist’s position as a self-conscious, temporary invader.
Öztekin’s second exhibition at Rampa addresses the artist’s multilayered relationship with the space and his own production. Öztekin divides the main exhibition space into two, displaying two groups of “abstract” and “portrait” artworks back to back.
The abstract work can be read as the deconstructed, destroyed, segmented versions of the various shapes and figures that the artist employs in his work, while the portraits tend toward an androgynous, genderless human type.
