Nil Yalter

Kara Kum

Galerist is pleased to host Nil Yalter’s solo exhibition “Kara Kum*” between the dates 9 March - 21 April 2018. Bringing together new works by Yalter, the exhibition takes its title from the material transformation of burnt sand into black, as observed at a foundry in the neighborhood of Hasköy, Istanbul. The blackness of this special material, the flames that transform it as well as the crater, known as the flaming Door to Hell, in the middle of the Karakum Desert are the source of the artist’s investigation into images of darkness and closure.
