For her first exhibition at Rampa gallery, Çağdaş Kahriman (b.1977, Ankara) will present a corpus of works created between 2012 et 2014 , series untitled Woodings, Prairials, Frange, Radiographies, Glitch and a selection of videos and animations.
Her work combines drawings, animations, sound and videos. This mixed and hybrid practice requires different approaches depending on the concepts. In her videos, she
transposes everyday life experience with other temporalities to reveal the trouble, social conditioning , latent violence of practices and normative processes . Her drawings questions the physical and physiological sensations that arise when confronted to our human condition paradoxes and dilemmas. She explores these issues varying artistic forms based on relations to time, to the History and to the subversive and poetic fragility.
Proceeding by subtraction and dissection, she incises large black papers, interlaces drawings on tracing paper, reconstructs fractures with foam boards, surimposes acetate and paper playing with lights and shadows, form and inform.
