THE SEA INSIDE OF ME

Solo Exhibition by Fırat Neziroğlu | Anna Laudel Bodrum

Fırat Neziroğlu transforms the traditional weaving form, which is one of the oldest arts known in Anatolia, into a unique contemporary weaving technique. Neziroğlu gives a different perspective to the classical weaving tradition by using the fishline for the first time, and he is widely noticed for this patented special weaving technique in contemporary art.

We forget the creativity of hands, which were seen as a divine gift in the old times in the modern age, as we do almost everything with one single finger click. Neziroğlu reminds us of the divine creativity of the hands with his woven works and builds bridges between the ancient times to the future. Fırat Neziroğlu’s new solo exhibition, titled 'The Sea Inside of Me' would take place between 18 June and 31 July at Anna Laudel Bodrum.

'The Sea Inside of Me' includes a selection of artworks that will be exclusively showcased at Anna Laudel Bodrum. The artist presents the four large carpet works referring to the first known Turkish carpet “Turkish Knot”, which came out of the Pazyryk burials.

In addition to these four carpets with softened corners and flowing fish patterns, the visitors will also enjoy the experience of seeing an interactive aquarium embroidery and a fish figurine in water. The exhibition, which also includes a video of Neziroğlu performing in the water, can be visited until July 31st 2022 at Anna Laudel Bodrum.

Inviting the audience to an inner journey, Neziroğlu’s weaving consists of a rhythm. Neziroğlu offers vivid evidence of the rhythm of existence in his fabrics and makes the audience feel that the nodes of the fabrics are wandering in the dark and light sides, like the universe carefully created in 13 million years when nothing was present. This way, he explains that life is not stable and consists of the harmony between death and life, joy and pain, declines and ascents, separations and convergences, emptiness and fullness.
