Selma Selman - Risk Change
*In 2018, I was part of the third international interdisciplinary art exhibition Personal, as part of the project Risk Change for which I received the White Aphroid Award for my works Dangers of the Body, The Body in Danger, Viva la Vida We Who Are Dreaming of. As part of the Risk Change project, my work was a part of My Art Is My Reality exhibition at the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Rijeka (CR), curated by Sanja Kojić Mladenov. The Risk Change project gives a chance for those artists who genuinely GIVE so much attempt for change of society while using art, technology, and mobility. Therefore, it allows us to think outside of the box and make sure that we can have a better future if you all respect those categorized as others. *Selma Selman
Emilija Škarnulytė at Kunsthaus Pasquart
EMILIJA ŠKARNULYTĖ – Sunken Cities at Kunsthaus Pasquart, 3 July – 29 August With Sunken Cities (2021), Emilija Škarnulytė creates an immersive film environment in the Galeries, in which the different rooms function as a time-line. She produces the effect of total immersion in a multi-dimensional landscape in which our gaze is duplicated by the mirrored ceiling and we simultaneously become witnesses of a future, contemporary and past world. The artist opens the perspective with this black, reflective surface, allowing us to experience it as a visual horizon that looks like an ocean of liquid oil.
Nevin Aladag, Kunstforum, Bd. 262
Kunstforum, Bd. 262 Borderlines **Nevin Aladağ** Mustergültiges für unsere Zeit Ein Gespräch von Sabine Maria Schmidt Nevin Aladağ gehört aktuell zu den international gefragten Künstlerpositionen aus Deutschland. 1972 geboren im türkischen Van, ein Jahr später umgesiedelt nach Stuttgart, ausgebildet in München, ansässig in Berlin, steht sie für eine Position, die fern politischer Identitätsdebatten freie künstlerische Ausdrucksmöglichkeiten findet. In zahlreichen Werkserien untersucht sie die Kraft und den Erfindungsreichtum von kulturellen Transfers. Ihre Arbeiten handeln von Selbstbestimmung, Rollentausch, Fremdwahrnehmung und Multiperspektivität. Klischees und vorgeformtes Wissen werden grundlegend hinterfragt. Und sie nutzt die Poesie von Stimmen und Klängen, die sie unterschiedlichsten Körpern und selbstgebauten Instrumenten entlockt.
