Bilge Friedlaender's exhibition at Arter will feature a body of work from the artist's fecund years of production between 1975 and 1985. Most of the works in the exhibition remained unseen since the 70s. As the first solo presentation of Friedlaender's work since her passing in 2000, this exhibition will present examples of her rigorous and analytical works. Finding "time, repetition, and the numerical mystery structure of things" as the focal point to explore, Friedlaender used paper, string, and natural materials to engage the line and square as expressions of the basis of human-ness.
Curators: Mira Friedlaender and Işın Önol
