ISTANBUL.- After COVID-19 hiatus, Anna Laudel reopens on Tuesday, June 9th with the extensive solo show entitled “Posthumous” by contemporary miniature artist Mehmet Sinan Kuran.

The exhibition is based on the idea of humankind's need to act and think differently around the concept of “togetherness”. With the exhibition and its name, Posthumous, meaning “afterlife” in Latin, Kuran reminds the audience that we must be together while still alive, be more sensitive than before and have to learn new things.

Underlining the importance of being together and united as the world shrinks and as the resources are gradually running out, Kuran deepens the possibilities of the mind, the connections between objects and people, and the boundaries of the image. With this understanding, the artist has been working, producing, reproducing and looking for ways to spread collective consciousness with young people in recent years, without any commercial concern.

Reaching “Posthumous” Through Three Phases
“Posthumous” is located on three floors of the gallery, consisting of three phases; Camel, Lion, and Child. Calling out from the third and last phase, which is the space of innocent children, Kuran emphasizes the importance of being together without any distinction between good and evil, but only focusing on the positive or negative.

Initial Phase: Camel
In the first phase; the existential burden that we carry on our back, including fear, loneliness, death, knowledge, and experience are highlighted. The artist underlines this heavy burden that we feel and our obedience to the system in order to be a part of the society.

Second Phase: Lion
In the second phase, the artist focused on the impossibility of freedom without breaking down the existing values and the obstacles. At this point, the artist investigates the importance of sharing our inner knowledge and impulsive feelings with other people.

Final Phase: Child
The last phase is a playground of innocent children, who do not have any experience yet or have to deal with the system.

Showcasing new works, as well as the recent ones, the artist invites the audience to see the colours which we are not familiar with, to hear the sounds that we haven’t heard before and to notice different senses. The exhibition includes a selection of Kuran’s works from different disciplines including painting, sculpture, installation, textile, neon, wood, and ceramics, as well as a wall painting, which will be coloured and developed with the participation of visitors.

Mehmet Sinan Kuran’s solo exhibition “Posthumous” can be seen at Anna Laudel until 29 August 2020.

Anna Laudel will accept visitors by appointment as part of the preventive health measures for a safe gallery visit.
