‘AnonymoX’ at X-ist Gallery
X-ist is hosting Serkan Adın’s solo exhibition titled “AnonymoX” until Jan. 25.
In his work, Adın calls the viewer’s attention not only on the female, but “on the eye that watches her” through the sensation of space (in-between spaces) that he creates. In all pictures, it is possible to mention an eye that spreads over the space of the picture and tells a lot of things about it: a culture that materializes the femininity, but also capitalizes on it, a patriarchal culture that describes women only through the norms it specified, a religious culture that is afraid of women and takes guard against them in result of this fear. This list could go on longer and longer, but what is important is the type of filters he uses to filter this societal perspective.
Adın, who generates his figures using various techniques, brings different perspectives together and fuses them into one, just like he does in his technique. This is why it is likely to see the graphic language, the styles of perception associated with female, and the origins of them.
