The Distance Between Me and Everything Else

Mehtap Baydu

November 29, 2017 – January 9, 2018

Galeri Nev Istanbul, Kemankeş Karamustafa Paşa Mahallesi, Mumhane Caddesi No. 46, Beyoğlu


The Berlin-based artist Mehtap Baydu returns to Istanbul with a solo show that delves into the corporeal. Centred around a skin-like rug, the exhibition explores the concept of bodies, identity, and self-expression. Her work on display includes self-portraits in paper created from a facial mold, lip molds and clothing from women around the artist, porcelain-cast molds of women’s breasts, and a field of flowers derived from atypical body parts.
