Ankara-born artist Arslan Sükan presents his second solo exhibition which explores the conventions of the modern white cube. Using his weapon of choice – photography – he examines the functions of the cube as an architectural paradigm and as a subject in itself.

Visually arresting as well as intelligently constructed under the artist’s strict instructions, the exhibition raises questions about what is meant by an art space. Sükan appropriated images of ‘installation shots’ – white cube spaces – in museums and galleries around the world. By digitally removing the artworks and painting in some of the parts, such as walls, ceilings or floors, he returns the image to its original state. By means of intervention and reconstruction of the white cube, Sükan creates dualism between recognition and non-recognition, visibility and invisibility, the abstract and the concrete – and bring an entirely new space for audiences to consider.
