‘Glove Factory’ at Gallery Apel
Gallery Apel will be hosting an Aslımay Altay Göney exhibition “Glove Factory” between Nov. 2 and Dec. 7. 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 the phenomenon of migration and narratives on our existential states of being to them. In “Glove Factory,” her tenth solo exhibition, she touches on the concepts of labor and manual labor; presenting them within a constructed production space, the experience of interpreting and rendering visual workforce, material, means of production, and even the manufactured commodity itself is given. Based on the idea of matching the form of the hand, the glove was chosen as a symbol of the workforce, as an object of mass production, the glove becomes the main theme of the conception.
