Gazi Sansoy

January 11, 2018 – February 16, 2018

Anna Laudel, Bankalar Caddesi No. 10, Karaköy, Beyoğlu

The work of Gazi Sansoy draws inspiration from his family’s tradition of satire. While his grandfathers satirized late Ottoman Empire society, Sansoy takes aim at more modern targets with his thought-provoking, witty paintings. This solo exhibition draws from works created between 2008 and 2018, organised under five subtitles. Nude​ ​and​ ​Covered​ ​Up​ ​Tales​ ​/​ ​Arabex consists of mixed-media work, combining photographs with paintings. Who​ ​are​ ​we? draws inspiration from Ottoman miniatures. Faceless puts a new spin on post-Renaissance West European painting. The last two subseries, Divine Milk and Yesterday,​ ​Today,​ ​Tomorrow,​ ​Istanbul,​ ​Dervishes, reference Sansoy’s family history.

The exhibition will also feature a short video portrait of Gazi Sansoy, filmed by Balamir Nazlıca​.
