İdil İlkin’s exhibition opens
Galerist presents the first solo exhibition by İdil İlkin titled “Landing Clearance” until Jan 11, 2014. Placing “aviation” as the central visual theme in the exhibition, Ilkin expresses the ambiguity of hanging in the air through the imagery of aircrafts, which have become as commonly used as taxis in current times. Hereby the gallery becomes the “Control Tower” for artist as “Landing Clearance” is a metaphor for the exhibition date. İlkin disassociates organic industrial design products and their functions in order to focus on the liberty that comes with uselessness. At the same time, she expresses the splits within us that turn us into segmented entities, locking our separated selves into disparate cells. İlkin’s compositions are just like minimal music; images and narratives make up multi-layered time segments, similar to repeated sound fragments in canonic imitation. As different times get mixed and become intertwined, forms liquefy, becoming indefinable and infinite.
