Arter hosts Bilge Friedlaender’s solo exhibition entitled “Words, Numbers, Lines” between 14 October 2016 and 15 January 2017. The exhibition, curated by Mira Friedlaender and Işın Önol, brings together works of the artist which have never been shown in Turkey nor exhibited elsewhere since the 1980s. “Words, Numbers, Lines” also marks the artist’s first solo exhibition since she passed away in 2000.
Oct. 14, 2016 – Jan . 15, 2017
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.
