“Earth and Fiber” is the name of the final of 20 years exhibitions. Nuran Terzioğlu closes her space with a sophisticated show breathing the spirit of Istanbul in a stage of despair and artistic reconsideration.
The central Taksim square, the main Venue for political protests focusing on the destruction of the old city structures in the past years, is in the process of a total transformation. The old multicultural quarter Beyoğlu, where the gallery is located, is still resisting with its indestructible Beauty. It was always the center of a vivid multicultural Life. The demolition of Central Cultural milestones like the Emek Film Palace and the Atatürk Cultural Center left waste land. Naming a final exhibition “Earth and Fiber” is a statement by the 75 years old Galerist to underline that the art-scene in Istanbul will continue to use the soil of the city to grow new thoughts, reflections to defend their roots in a historical setting of cosmopolitism and open-mindedness.
