Die Einzelausstellung von Eda Soylu bei BAP // Istanbul, ‘Not being forgotten, how strange!’ (27. September – 31. Oktober 2014) zeigte eine Zusammenstellung von nie zuvor gezeigten Arbeiten.

Soylu creates a world from her own experiences, from things she witnessed, places she visited, and poems she re-reads /remembers. Following the traces of destruction that happen in various ways along with the effects and scars of oppression and slaughter, this world is created by the works that are being marked admirably out of the destroyed. The contrast, which is applied delicately but is yet rough through the choice and use of the material triggers a graceful touch to human spirit. Yet, the works constitute subtle and catchy forms that touch one´s heart with sorrow.

Rather than sharp divisions, chronological or thematic classifications, the exhibition is built with an approach that suggests her artistic methodology.

Taken from the artist’s notes, the exhibition is titled as a reference to Metin Altok’s (1940-1993) ‘Sonnets’ in order to point out her relation to literature, especially to Turkish poetry.

The worldly matters, my dear
are not being forgotten, how strange!
Even when I am making love to you on a mattress
I am thinking of sad young mothers
Carrying a bag in bazaars, in markets

The exhibition at BAP// ISTANBUL reminds of the artists’ studio through the spatial compositions she creates with the use of untraditional ready materials such as coffee, concrete, flowers, plasters etc. Composed with site-specific works such as sculpture, installation and found material, the exhibition is both biographical and world-embracing.
