Apel hosts Aslımay Altay Göney
Galeri Apel hosts Aslımay Altay Göney’s exhibition “Glove Factory” between Nov. 2 and Dec. 7, 2013.
The artist, who lives and works in Germany and Turkey, continues her journey in travel and road stories, which are the initial source of her production process, by adding to them the phenomenon of migration and narratives on our existential states of being.
In “Glove Factory,” her 10th solo exhibition, she touches on the concepts of labor and manual labor; she presents within a constructed production space the experience of interpreting and rendering visual workforce, material, means of production, and even the manufactured commodity itself. Based on the idea of matching the form of the hand, chosen as a symbol of workforce, with an object of mass production, the glove becomes the main theme of the conception. The expressive language of this exhibition is composed of repeating forms, and volumes engendered by these repetitions, shaped by elements that are replicated by hand in such a way that each preserves its originality.
