Fulya Asyalı
“Gilded Ruin”


“Gilded Ruin”, the solo exhibition of Fulya Asyalı is ready to meet the audience at Çağla Cabaoğlu Gallery between September 13 – November 1, 2022. 

The Gilded Ruin is a mood fed by a feeling of resistance and transformation rather than anger against the pessimism that is spread by political and environmental disasters and various dramatic scenes that surround the genre image of our lives. The gilded details that create contrast in the grayness of the present conditions remind us of the permanence of the lyric and divine one, even amid impermanence and destruction.

While carefully avoiding the quiet and fragile freedom of one single room in her soul from the clamor of the material world, the artist undertakes the role of an alchemist, and, as expressed by Baudelaire in “Flowers of Evil”, turns mud into gold.

Angels dressed in gold, purple, and hyacinth,
O you, witness that I have done my duty
Like a competent alchemist, like a sacred soul,
I have extracted the quintessence of every single thing, 
You have given me your mud, and I have made gold out of it.
