Description Edouard Malingue Gallery is pleased to present ‘ISTHK|HKIST’, the first exhibition in Hong Kong of celebrated Turkish contemporary artist, Nuri Kuzucan (b. 1971, Turkey). A highly anticipated exhibition, the solo show marks the first time Turkish contemporary art is provided a particular focus in Hong Kong, and brings together two of the world’s most thriving artistic scenes: Istanbul and Hong Kong. The exhibition thus reflects Edouard Malingue Gallery’s dedication to exhibiting selected distinguished talent from around the world. ‘ISTHK|HKIST’ will feature a series of twelve works that individually, as well as aggregately, explore the complex geometries of dense urban landscapes. Although devoid of human presence, Nuri Kuzucan shows in his paintings how metropolises, from Istanbul to Hong Kong, have become signifiers and quantifiers of modern living. Nuri Kuzucan thus explores society’s increased focus on space and provides reflection, as well as seeming criticism, on our manifested urbanity and celebrated contemporaneity.
