Invisible Cities

Bilal Hakan Karakaya

March 30, 2023 – May 21, 2023

Anna Laudel, Kazancı Yokuşu No: 45, Gümüşsuyu Mah., Beyoğlu, 34437 Istanbul

Karakaya creates sculptures that represent the desolation and gloom of modern cities, using a thousand-year-old casting technique to push the boundaries of sculpture. His recent works reference Glenn Albrecht’s concept of ‘Solastalgia’, depicting dystopian urban life as an alienating and imprisoning place. Inspired by pandemic-induced desolation, his sculptures prophesy a dark future and create a sense of unreality and uncanniness.
