Writing Remains

Zeynep Beler

January 7, 2017 – February 18, 2017

Zilberman Gallery and Project Space, Mısır Apt, İstiklâl Cad 163, Floors 2 & 3, D5 & 10, Galatasaray, Beyoğlu, 34433 İstanbul

This exhibition, presented in Galeri Zilberman’s project space, is Zeynep Beler’s first at the gallery.

Beler’s deep engagement with literature is manifest in her work. The artist’s process includes thinking about the multitude of meanings in artistic practice and is inspired by asemic writing, a wordless, open-ended form of writing that is seemingly a vacuum of meaning. While producing asemic writing, Beler discovered the difficulty of writing credible ‘fake’ writing. The work included in the exhibition is the result of this effort to push the boundaries of credibility. Viewers are invited to decode what is behind all of these abstractions and what asemic writing could propose.

The exhibition also offers a different perspective on alphabet and text as we know them, as these are technologies that are on the verge of disappearing in their familiar forms, replaced by newer technologies. Today, modes of expression that relate to the act of writing have become ‘fleeting’ just like many other things have in the Internet era.
