“Teşhire İkna II” sergisinin bu yılki seçkisini sanat eleştirmeni Ayşegül Sönmez yapıyor.
Ayşegül Sönmez, an art critic, will compile the anthology of “Revelation II” exhibition this year. Sönmez emphasizes that she is not trying to gather the selected artists of the exhibition under a common theme, material or tendency; instead she is only aiming to make their works more visible and sharable through this exhibition. She also states that:
“I think "Revelation”, which is now organized for the second time, is a very appropriate initiative. We are in the times of market values domination, yet it is such a valuable attitude to see that an art gallery welcomes artists that do not have a gallery of their own, even for one exhibition.
I wanted to allocate space in this exhibition for the artists whose works I have followed for a long time but could not see very often in the current art environment.
I think their works could be defined as peculiar to them. For instance, their tendency to stay away from the current plastic materials, that they are not inclined for daily fashion, that they are even distant to it…are all their common characteristics..."
