SEYHUN TOPUZ

Present Tense

Galeri Nev İstanbul is excited to present a new solo show by Seyhun Topuz. Titled Present Tense, the exhibition features eleven recent sculptures that resemble none of the earlier periods of Topuz. For this exhibition, the artist returns to forms that she experimented with in her studio in the 80’s. At the time, unsure of what their outcome would be, she had le them to mature. Now ready to go back to these forms, she creates copper sculptures that look like crumpled and tossed away papers. Departing from the well-known geometrical forms seen in her practice, these sculptures are constructed by bending copper plates. They are formed during the process of bending the metal and do not follow any previous sketch. is new method allows for spontaneity and encourages an expressionist manner.
