Galerie | PRISKA PASQUER, Cologne
Under the mysterious title “Ideas disperse in the universe in order to continue to live on other planets”, | PRISKA PASQUER is proud to present the ﬁrst individual exhibition in Germany by Turkish artist Bengü Karaduman. The title of the exhibition comes from a poem by Meret Oppenheim and takes up the thematic reins of the artist’s previous solo exhibition.
By fusing together dreams, metaphors and the fruits of her imagination, Karaduman’s works attain a hermetic character. The artist works with several different media at the same time – e.g. sculpture, video, installations and drawings – in order to give free rein to a creative rather than causal approach and all that emerges in its wake. Karaduman’s cross-genre approach stems from the free ﬂow of a boundlessly creative energy drawn from “experienced” states of both waking and dreaming.
Created specially for the exhibition at | PRISKA PASQUER, the artist’s new drawings, sculptures and wall installations show the sheer variety of her expression in a poetic language with urgent metaphors.
