Milk, plaster, acid, oil, water, rice, sugar, wood, glass, metal are some of these materials Gül choses to use. Centers and peripheries, bodies and identities, history and memory, life and death, language and archetypes, rituals and metaphors, such are the relations Deniz Gül dissects meticulously. Following a similar thread in literature, Gül arrives at an in between zone of “unlearning”, a zone that is not dominated by meaning, but by all means open to an emergence of experience, of possibilities.
