Project Fulfill Art Space, Taipei, celebrates its 10th anniversary with the exhibition featuring Turkish artist Fahrettin Örenli.
This exhibition showcases Örenli’s diverse art practice through a range of mediums, including sound and light installation, works on canvas, drawings and video works.
“3D SUNSET — The Soul of the Earth City” is an extension of Fahrettin Örenli’s previous exhibition project “High Heels” showcased in Istanbul in 2016, discussing the issues of how economic, political and social climates influence the future of our constructed world. In the same year, Örenli carried out a brief period of research in Taiwan, incorporating a different perspective into selected works, reconfigured for this exhibition. Layered within his work is a dual dialogue seeking to engage with the city of Taipei; how do we confront our collective vision of the perceivable future, and face what lies ahead, formed in the wake of capitalism?
Örenli implies the concept of ‘3D’ with the notion of virtual reality, within which we become gradually immersed. Even as we directly interact with reality, we nevertheless accept the control of an immense organized system on our perceptible world, driven by socio-economic and political forces. In turn, we numbly refuse to believe that its exposure can change the way we live; instead seek to reason that perhaps this could be an opportunistic new beginning for the condition of life.
Fahrettin Örenli (b. 1969) is an interdisciplinary artist of hybrid ethnicity, working across cultural as well as geographical borders. Örenli studied at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie (1998) and the Rijksakademie Van Beeldende Kunsten (2001). He was awarded the Royal Painting Prize at the Dutch Academy of Fine Arts (2000), and the ABN AMRO Art Award (2004). Recent major solo exhibitions include “High Heels,” DEPO, Istanbul (2016) and “Money Without Nationality,” Art Sonje Center, Seoul (2017). He was artist in residency at the MMCA Residency Changdong, Seoul (2017); Platform Garanti (SALT), Istanbul (2006-7), and ISCP, New York (2003). Örenli has exhibited in Taipei, Istanbul, Havana, London and New York.
The exhibition is on view through April 7, 2018, at Project Fulfill Art Space, 1F, No.2, Alley 45, Lane 147, Sec. 3, Sinyi Rd. Taipei 10658, Taiwan.
