DENİZ GÜL

Deniz Gül (b. in Izmir in 1982) is a conceptual artist. Her practice, which navigates between visual arts and literature embraces an experimental and poetic approach. How objects become bodies and spaces to dwell in is a theme that developed in her work throughout years. Gül uses a wide pallette of organic and inorganic materials to their extremes, experimenting how materials come together and manifest a presence. 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.
