Viron Vert exhibition opens at Galerist
ISTANBUL - Hürriyet Daily News
Galerist hosts the second solo exhibition by the artist Viron Erol Vert titled “7 Curtains,” between Sept. 12 and Oct. 21. Vert was born in Germany in 1975 to a family of Greek, Italian, and Syrian background. His multicultural background colors his work, which includes elements of both Occident and Orient. “7 Curtains” alludes to the Turkish word “perde,” which is also associated with the acts of a play or an opera. On this theater stage, Vert creates a new language of mysticism incorporating ancient beliefs, orientalist clichés, and esoteric correspondences. He uses the power of myth and archetype to create post-modern alchemical processes - looking back at the same time as looking ahead. The exhibition starts on Sept 12.
