August & September 2022.
Gözde İlkin’s fifth solo exhibition at artSümer, titled Entrusted Ground, is on the one hand a landscape painting stretched to three-dimensions, on the other, it is also a stage for sound and movement. Comprising fire, water, earth and air, this place is perhaps a motif to be inhabited, or perhaps, it is merely a cave in the crevices of our minds. Entrusted Ground is home to homeless stones, a shift for dancers and twigs, or a prayer for fractures. Here you can, eavesdrop, close your eyes and daydream, move about or take root; the point is to contemplate Gaia. Throughout the duration of the exhibition, Entrusted Ground will be activated by Aslı Öztürk’s choreography; sounds of the ground come from Berke Can Özcan. Curated by Duygu Demir.
