The “Young Artists IV Ceramic Exhibition”, where the latest works of 9 young artists and artist candidates are gathered, presents 9 different points of view in the works carried out using various possibilities of technical and aesthetic aspects of ceramic material.
While there is a criticism against the mechanized people and the consumer society in Burak Ayazoğlu’s work titled “Transformation”, Ceyhun Çelik’s work called “Öz” underlines people breaking apart from and marginalizing each other. Attending the exhibition with her work titled “GMO”, Gözde Eşkazan emphasizes the real danger behind the glamorous appearance of GMO foods. Karin Gudaoglu tells us about their lives by using ceramic copies of items belonging to grandmother and grandfather in her study “Memories”. Presenting a humorous perspective to the visitors, Seray Keloğlu gives us the opportunity to imagine what the world might be like in the event other living beings living in nature were humans with her work named “Vice Versa Earth”. Merve Özaslan, with her work named “Nature” shows that humanity is not a dominant part of nature but a part of nature, has participated in the exhibition demonstrating impossibility in terms of usability, pointing to the superiority of nature. With his work titled “Stomach-ache”, Önder Terzi, uses a stomach form to describe his own anxieties and concerns. Ayşe Yıldırım reflects the important women of the Republic Period in the form of a bell in her work titled “Leading Women of the Republic” using raku technique. Seda Zobaroglu, who participated in the exhibition with her work titled “Civil and Disobedient”, presents us the silent revolt of an individual who cannot be heard against all antidemocratic developments in a country of “advanced democracy” where the victim may be unjust and the guilty can be free.
