Balpınar kilim exhibition to open at Çırağan gallery
ISTANBUL - Hürriyet Daily NewsThe Çırağan Palace Kempinski Art Gallery will host its second exhibition of 2012. The exhibition is the first ever retrospective of Belkis Balpınar, who became known as the leader of the branch of art known as “Artkilim” from 1986 onward.
“It may be said that on their flat surface, the kilim and felt reflect dimensions which are outside the dimensions we know and different sizes that the movements create that we can’t see in the micro and macro universes,” Balpınar said about her works.
The works that Balpınar has created with her special style and the modern art items in which the fabric of the kilim and felt were used have been shown at nearly 30 solo and mixed exhibitions both in Turkey and abroad.
