'Summer Show' at Pi Artworks Istanbul brings together works by five artists

ISTANBUL.- Summer Show brings together new works by five Pi Artworks artists Nancy Atakan, Osman Dinç, Horasan, Nejat Satı and Ümmühan Yörük.

Nancy Atakan’s Scarves is a series of European styled silk headscarves which were first manufactured in Turkey in the 1930’s that contain drawings of old photographs showing female members of Atakan’s family wearing headscarves. Reflections of re-construction is a series of side-view minibus mirrors with images of ‘Old’ Istanbul going through an extensive architectural transformation transposed on them.

Osman Dinç’s new minimalist iron sculptures bring many figural issues to the fore – gravity, balance, suitability and durability of material.

Nejat Satı’s new painting series Melancholy is the continuation of his dynamic, abstract series, which allude to the shattered panes of glass or an exploding on the surface.

Horasan’s collage and painting works are extracts from his major last solo show at Pi Artworks London. An exhibition that contained an imposing series of portrait paintings, titled only by the years of their subject’s birth, that focused on the toll the passage of time takes on the human body.

Ümmühan Yörük’s polyester self-portrait works draw on her interest in identity and self-questioning.

Summer Show can be visited at Pi Artworks Istanbul until September 12, 2014.

Pi Artworks was founded by Yesim Turanli in 1998 in Istanbul and for the past 15 years has been introducing Turkish and international artists to the primary market. Since its founding, Pi Artworks has been committed to showcasing the best of Contemporary Turkish and international art to Istanbul's growing art scene, alongside providing an international platform for its roster of artists to showcase their work. The gallery is located at the famous historical Misir Apartmani in Istanbul and in October 2013 Pi Artworks London opened on 55 Eastcastle Street, in the heart of London's bustling Fitzrovia with a group exhibition Pi: Housewarming, presenting some of its key artists ahead of a series of solo shows.
