Gözde İlkin's show focuses on social relationships at times of conflict and the possibility to find new methods to transform and create new practices of coexistence.


Her stories portray associations shaped by time-place and relationships against promises that fail to reach a solution and at uncanny times. “Absent Demonstrations” series consists of found stained fabrics collected between 2015-2017. İlkin uses painting and stitching to create a ground where the fabric, the material and the form host each other. As in the past, the fabric is her stage, the figures are anonymous and amorphic, and the content is political, albeit subtly and quietly so.
