GLOCALOCAL curated by Esen Taylor, presents two exhibitions, Woodcuts and Prints in parallel, comparing and contrasting the works of Gören Bulut and Esen Taylor. These two exhibitions will explore the socio-cultural imperatives of the globalisation and global/local relations.
Gören Bulut's woodcuts examines mass degeneration resulting from the post-industrial process in the 1980s and reflects his conception of urban which was shaped by the relations among art, advancing technology and the changing society. Bulut's work displays a conceptual as well as an intellectual attitude by the way of figurative arrangement in an imaginary composition. Each work of the series encompasses the elements that point to difficulties of existence and the identity constituting a problem in the city life.
Esen Taylor's installations investigate the impact of cultural globalisation on popular culture and consumption patterns developed since the 1980s. Esen Taylor's work examines shifting preferences of lifestyle, identities and consumption patterns from local to global and from modern to post-modern values. Each work of the series tackles the impact of globalisation on socio-cultural domain and scrutinises the relationship between the local and consumer cultures brought about by the globalisation process.
