‘Glass Cage’ at Artisan Gallery
The artist approaches the social and cultural reflections shaped by this synergy with a 'window' image.Artisan Art Gallery is hosting Seyit Mehmet Buçukoğlu’s display titled “Glass Cage” until Jan. 31. The artist handles multiple socio-cultural structures from the environment that the individual has been born and grew up in to the environment that the individual has been raised in and approaches the social and cultural reflections shaped by this synergy with a “window” image.
In this context, the windows shape so many important details that possess the architectural culture and characteristics of the geography that they are in. The fact that the window image is represented with lack of aesthetic and cultural values as well as becoming only identical details that are about the diminish in contemporary architecture becomes the leitmotiv of the art work of the artist.
The window images which belong to different cultures that he uses in his art work indicate something superficially contaminated, rotten and even put in secondary importance and in some way diminished. In the superstructure, he criticizes the usage of unaesthetic pattern skyscraper windows which destroys the cultural values and just like a glass cage imprisons the preceding ones.
