Burçak Bingöl

Ayvalık, September 2020

Burçak Bingöl’s works explore memory, identity, cultural heritage, and decoration by blurring the boundaries between these seemingly disparate notions. Her works are psychological landscapes on forgetting and remembering that hover between abstraction and representation, rejection and preservation; they both embrace and disregard Eastern and Western artistic traditions.

Through processes of tracing, copying and re-forming, Bingöl aims to construct new sets of configurations by de-structuring familiar representations. Within this culturally and personally charged scope of examination, her works emerge through a constant re-working of images, objects and forms, converging in a repetitive act where fiction and failure merge. As such, their spatial, sensorial morphological and conceptual relations to space open up a research field of visual exploration.
