Kare Gallery, Abdi İpekçi Caddesi, Ada Apt. No. 22/8 K. 2, Nişantaşı

Veteran Cypriot artist Emin Çizenel’s highly-conceptual new exhibition, named after an old Ottoman word meaning ‘record’ or ‘inscription’, is based on the imagined concept of a ‘calendar’, but one which is located in space rather than time. This calendar does not account for days but transforms time into a space where fragments of an undefined whole are interwoven.

Çizenel’s artistic language is unique and his work is best viewed than read about. He is inspired by ‘numerous schizophrenic and skeptical concepts’, and explores religion, spiritualism and politics by using symbols which are representative of, for example, war, cultures and eroticism. Through these contrasts, Çizenel criticises and questions the very essence of these themes.
