I have a feeling

Murat Şahinler

February 21, 2014 – March 23, 2014

Pilot, Sıraselviler Caddesi No. 83/2, Beyoğlu, Istanbul

Curated by the Turkish painter Leyla Gediz and the curator Misal Adnan Yıldız, this exhibition brings together the recent works of the Istanbul-based artist Murat Şahinler. Prices range from €3,000 to €15,000.

Şahinler’s painting practice, which he practices every day and changes constantly, emerges as a multi-layered narrative. The underlying concept is to bring to the forefront one aspect of Şahinler’s painting practice: the different stages of being an adult and ageing and the perception of the body that shifts according to gender and socio-economics.

The majority of the works are exhibited at Pilot’s main space while at Co-Pilot next door, the artist’s six-metre wide painting, ‘Autobiography’, in which he integrates excerpts of his various works from the past to the present, is displayed. This painting – characterised by grotesque and neo-gothic elements – is accompanied by an original sound composition by the musician Cem Ömeroğlu and Şahinler.
