DÜSSELDORF.- Anna Laudel Düsseldorf presents Tuğçe Diri’s first solo exhibition in Germany, titled “Mono-Signs” between March 24 and April 30, 2022.

The exhibition takes its name from the word ‘mono’, which in Turkish means ‘uniqueness’. During the production process of her artworks, Diri blends the concepts of history, memory, culture and nature with a visual culture based on tradition, colliding cultural distinctions and similarities in the context of art and craft on a formal plane.

Considering cultural visual heritage as a layer of memory, the artist uses the traditional aesthetic as a language of expression that meets today’s critical discourses and concepts.

Based on the idea that representation of nature in art is directly related to social and political perceptions, Diri brings an eco-critical approach to her works in the exhibition, emphasizing the traces left by human actions on the ecosystem.

In “Mono-Signs” the artist sets out with the idea that masses are a cultural phenomenon of consumption, and she physically and metaphorically divides these accumulations into pieces in her mind, then rearranges them on the painting surface by stacking, sorting, accumulating and filling, and combines them through repetitions. These images, evoking the representation of nature, the abstracted and transformed traces of garbage piles stacked on top of each other, become the landscapes of our age.

In the stack-compositions of the artist, which she creates spontaneously with a geometric and organic line, waste, litter, trash and garbage appear as heaps, recreating the image of natural disasters, catastrophes and destruction.

Around elements such as elegant handcraft, labor and productivity, the artist not only conveys the historical context of embroidery but also performs artisanal competence in working with materials and techniques. While doing so, Diri gives us clues to penetrate into the deep roots of an understanding rather than producing an art object.

Tuğçe Diri’s solo exhibition “Mono-Signs” can be visited until April 30, 2022 at Anna Laudel Düsseldorf.

Tuğçe Diri was born in Eskişehir in 1984. She graduated from Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University in 2010, with a degree from Applied Lithography Atelier and Painting. She opened her first workshop in 2010 and continued working. In 2019, she completed her Master's degree from Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University Painting Department with the thesis "Reflections of Traditional Arts on Contemporary Turkish Painting". Working in series and using materials such as acrylic/oil paint, charcoal/ink pencil, collage, fabric, yarn, she holds drawing at the beginning of her production practice. Drawing is always at the core of her work. Diri is influenced by a wide range of periods and techniques, from Arte Povera to Surrealism, from the dynamism of Abstract Expressionists to the design and text-painting traditions of Islamic Arts. Exhibiting a synthesis spirit in her productions, blending the concepts of history, memory, culture and nature with the visual culture based on tradition, Tuğçe Diri collides cultural distinctions and similarities in the context of art and craft on a formal plane. Tuğçe Diri lives and produces in Istanbul.
