Yılmaz exhibit at Sanatorium
İlke Yılmaz, a young artist well-known for her wide range of artistic productions from collages to installations, sculptures to performances, is holding her first personal exhibition at Sanatorium March 13 to April 13.
The exhibition touches upon her earlier subjects of interest and aims to question the relationship between art and material through complementary works that transform each other. In her productions Yılmaz tries to direct entities baring stories of womanhood in their background and in search of their own through different techniques. The materials that grant vitality to vision are separated from their initial purposes and converted into tools through constant manipulation by the artist. The artistic practice is emphasized by the variety of materials and met by the imagery essence that is hidden under the necessity of the material.
“The qualities of the materials that I’m using in my artistic productions are crucial in terms of allowing me to express my ideas. This variety gives flexibility to the work’s expression,” the artist has said. “By benefiting from the visual language of the material, I consider them a visual instrument in my works.
