Ebru Eltemur: Slicing Burning Boiling

Parasol Projects @ 2 Rivington Street

Slicing Burning Boiling @ 2 Rivington
October 25 – 28 / 12 – 6 pm
Opening Reception: October 24 / 6 – 9 pm

Slicing Burning Boiling is an experimental response to the often exclusive and discriminatory nature of the contemporary art market. Featuring 11 young artists who critically interface with capitalist, Euro-centric education systems, the exhibition disrupts the impulse to create commercialized art by exhibiting highly personal, intimate work. The works will range across media, such as a sculpture installation made of matchbooks, and a painting inspired by a love letter that the artist had received. Further, it disputes the abusive correlation between value and labor in art-making. In doing so, it renegotiates the “process” of becoming a successful “artist” and questions the authority of those who have established such boundaries for decades.

Produced and curated by Ebru Eltemur, a 20-year-old Istanbul-bred curator-to-be, it will be an experimental group exhibition that explores the questions of intimacy, identity-making, and relationships. Ebru adds, “I see it as more of a survey analysis of the way we see ourselves and how that differs from the way we see others.” It is an amalgam of undisclosed thoughts, abused emotions, and lessened ambitions.
