Senol Altun
“Photomorphosis & Luminous Sculptures Vol.II”

MAY 30 – AUGUST 1 2018 /// 42 MASLAK ART!SPACE GALLERY
SOLO EXHIBITION

The second solo exhibition of the artist Şenol Altun from Çağla Cabaoğlu Gallery will meet the art lovers at 42 Maslak Art!SPACE Gallery between May 30 and August 1, 2018.

The show, whose opening will take place on May 30, can be visited as a large solo exhibition featuring the artist’s “Photomorphosis” photography series at the first floor and his “Luminous Sculptures” downstairs.

Şenol Altun’s Photomorphosis Exhibition introduces a group of photographs that seem to lose their momentary reality and to appear before us from another dimension, as a result of the interaction of light with known objects.

Downstairs, as it was exhibited at the Luminous Sculptures Exhibition that was held in 2014, the show consists of works created from recycled industrial parts, design objects that give a different atmosphere to the place where they are in daylight and ‘light’ in darkness.

Şenol Altun, as a professional photographer who has participated in countless projects, presents to us two large exhibitions composed of two different disciplines and brings to the audience both 2 and 3-dimensional artworks, where the light is used as a tool for design and art.

BIOGRAPHY / ARTVIN, 1970

Immigrated to Istanbul with his family at the age of fifteen, Altun graduated from Marmara University, Department of Photography. He continued his career starting as an assistant, by shooting fashion, locality, architecture and still-life photographs. He published the photo books “Nefes/Breath” where behind the scene images of the motion picture titled “Nefes: Vatan Sağ olsun /Breath: Long Live Homeland” are compiled, and “Çatılardan Istanbul/Istanbul From Rooftops” referred to as his homage to Istanbul. In year 2014, he realized his first exhibition at Çağla Cabaoğlu Gallery, titled “Illuminating Sculptures.

Use and importance of light in shooting photographs serve as inspirations in creation of works based on light. And the idea of sculptures emitting light which could be viewed both as sculptures as well as design objects emerge and evolve through such an inspiration. His interest in respect of re-utilization of scrapped materials, when merged with light, emerges new forms of sculpture which are each lamps at the same time. Şenol Altun adopts in his works a method of creation which is mere improvisation. Upon bringing together the materials found according to shape, color and appearance, he creates his sculptures in a spontaneous attitude. This, at the same time, comprises of the transformation of the invaluable to the valuable, enlivening of the material at a new dimension, in a new form.
