In this exhibition, curated by Stephan Berg (Director of the Kunstmuseum Bonn) the artist takes us into a different place. Inspired by a photograph of a pergola in Istanbul the walls and ceiling of the gallery are transformed into a spatial drawing reflecting the pergola’s archway. This is created by using black dye and fine silver lines while from the ceiling tentacles of fluorescent tubes, wires, pigmented latex and warped polyester tumble downwards creating spaces for the artist bold, colourful Plexiglas sculptures.

These are created by the original flat PET-G plates being painted and then transformed into other worldly three dimensional shapes through heat and pressure. The result as you can see here is inspiring.
