Mike Berg: Simple Geometry

Galeri Nev, Istiklal Caddesi Misir Apt. 163 Kat 4 D 23, Beyoğlu

Galeri Nev presents Simple Geometry, an exhibition showing recent works of Mike Berg.

Mike Berg, living in Istanbul since 1999, is renown for his large scaled handiwork designs on kilim and canvas as well as his metal sculptures.

Berg, redounds depth and new senses to the known basic, geometrical forms by creating metal swirls based on spheres, prisms and pyramids; and regenerates these fundamental shapes in our recollections in his own language.

On view there are sculptures produced with fundamental geometrical forms, and large steel wall sculptures. He describes these works as: “The idea of producing patterns lies at the root of my motive for displaying my metal works on wall. In fact it’s possible to state that these patterns appear on metal rather than on paper. They’re ornaments of such kind that are brought out of ink, but don’t exist on paper. On the other hand, when the wall works are emplaced with a certain aperture from wall, the shadow plays they create are just another occurence that appeals me”.
