Ankara-Istanbul

September 3, 2019 – September 30, 2019

MSGSÜ Tophane-i Amire Culture and Art Center Tek Kubbe, Boğazkesen Cad. Defterdar Yokuşu No: 2 Tophane, Beyoğlu


Osman Dinc’s Ankara-Istanbul exhibition is taking place at Tophane-i Amire Culture and Art Center, Tek Kubbe from 3rd to 30th of September. The exhibition is an opportunity to discover the international artist’s sculptures and photography works created in Ankara which he remembers as the place of his artistic rebirth.

Living and working in Paris since 1977, Osman Dinc keeps a privileged and warm place in his heart for Ankara for several personal reasons; as a young artist, the artist graduated from Gazi University Painting Department, a Bauhaus-influenced school at its establishment and offering multiple workshops on diverse material and technique. Now, an established artist, Dinc is in constant dialogue with young artists and art collectives in the city. Also, during his short trips to Turkey, Dinc produced his artworks in a studio situated in the center of Ostim Organized Industrial Region since the last twenty-nine years.

The Ankara-Istanbul exhibition presents the sculptures and photographs that the artist produced in the city during the last ten years, some of which were presented to the viewers at A World Story exhibition at CerModern, Ankara (2014). Osman Dinc’s minimalist, abstract and Arte Povera inspired sculptures stand out with their formal simplicity, they are described by himself as ‘an archeology of collective memory’ and ‘a story of world’ and are presented together with his photography works. According to Osman Dinc, both photography and sculpture are, in terms of forms, a matter of light; ‘The sculpture explores the real place. The photo explores the imaginary space. A human being lives with both.’
