Bilal Hakan Karakaya as ever pushes the boundaries of traditional sculture in his latest show, Earthly Realm. The exhibition offers a different story on each floor, leading the visitor through from Hell to Purgatory and Paradise, as in Dante’s Divine Comedy. Karakaya reverses the usual static structure of the sculpture; structures that need to become thinner as they rise gradually thicken and enlarge.

Working with resin, industrial and natural recycled materials, Karakaya grapples with impressions of individuals trapped in the chaos of modern city life, reinterpreting the complex structure of daily life in works full of symbolism that try to establish a new relationship between the past and the present.
