About the Item

This series consists of bronze casting figures in 5 different postures. The surface can be selected as either copper patina or silver patina. It's actually a deep jump into the unknown. ABOUT DARC DESCENT The 'Debris' exhibition a questioning project about the constantly growing city covered with skyscrapers ,even we cannot see the daytime sky and the stars at night and the urbanization that goes back and forth between fictional realities. In the contemporary period, the concept of private property beginning with settled life, creates a chaos full of dead ends . Man becomes the owner of every property, every object he purchases in this chaos, and it turns into a captivity. So man is no longer just a prisoner; he has become an entity that “virtualizes” his identity through science and technology. ​Unforeseen truth; The destruction created by growing cities in nature was the destruction of their own nature. In this “debris”, the person who tries to stay in balance has become almost an acrobat. ​He was trying to achieve a balance by taming the nature he had destroyed, slaughtered and trying to create his artificial nature. He needed “landscaping” arrangements to green the surroundings of the houses he made of concrete. The effort of man to destroy nature and establish a superiority against nature; Is it an effort of immortality through the concepts of leaving a mark and creating it? Is this destruction that serves the human ego a tool or a target ? And how can one explain the need for nature to live in this "debris" created by man? This exhibition aims to carry out a reading through the complexity of destruction, debris, devastation, nature, responsibility to nature, ego, belonging and virtual identity complexity. To fly it is necessary to throw weights. Who doesn't want to fly .. ​

    Porcelain Book Holder (Two Piece) Deniz Pireci's works; He tries to rediscover all the meanings contained in ceramics as a tool, to emphasize them even more, and sometimes simply to reveal them. As a tool, it is obvious that porcelain refers to fragility, craft, handcraft as well as mystery and the invisible. The use of porcelain in the field of contemporary art necessarily encompasses all these concepts, which it evokes as a material, within its scope. Pireci produces works that are included in many different trends with its approach to materials and art. At the same time, it not only questions our sovereignty over images, it creates an opportunity for us to lose it for a while. (Aysegul Sonmez) Deniz Pireci, who deals with issues such as migration, locality, identity, cultural difference and gender from different perspectives in her art practice, was born in Istanbul. She graduated, Ceramic Department of Marmara University Fine Arts Faculty. She completed her Master's Degree in Marmara University Fine Arts Institute Ceramic-Glass Main Art Branch in 2006 and still continues her work in her studio in Istanbul.
