The sculptures of Bilal Hakan Karakaya are featured in his new exhibition, Earthly Realm, held at the Anna Laudel gallery until 8 March 2020. Karakaya is renowned for his unique technique of using different materials, pushing the boundaries of traditional sculpture production. The exhibition, with a different story on each floor, opens to the audience’s experience with Hell, Purgatory, and Paradise, as in Dante’s Divine Comedy. In the exhibition, Karakaya reverses the usual static structure of the sculpture and turns it upside down; with this way structures that need to be thinned as it rises in this way, are gradually thickening and enlarging.

Working with resin, industrial and natural waste, Karakaya reflects the impressions of individuals trapped in the chaos of modern city life on his works. The artist reinterprets the complex structure of daily life and reestablishes it by applying a symbolic approach. His sculptures are inspired by the reality of life and establish relationships with the past and the present.
