Showcasing contemporary exhibitions with locations in Istanbul and Düsseldorf, Anna Laudel welcomes the summer season at ZAİ Yaşam with Emin Mete Erdoğan’s comprehensive solo exhibition “Over the Under” which will be on display until 18 June 2023.

Combining technical painting with classical painting techniques on daily concepts, Emin Mete Erdoğan invites art lovers to deepen their vision by providing conceptuality through constant repetition. Inspired by mythological stories and dialectical thinking, Erdoğan’s works bring together different genres with a unique way of expression and disrupts the historical and cultural flow.

The exhibition features paintings, reliefs, sculptures and video works that the artist has produced since 2021 and will be on display for the first time, as well as works from his previous exhibitions, including “AD” and “Plants, Animals and Buildings”.

Through his works, Emin Mete Erdoğan creates a space to purify, heal and re-personalise the past and present, east and west, and many other dichotomies with the power of majority and wholeness. In order to encourage the audience to question the existential ground that is pre-assumed and defined in a certain manner,  Erdoğan  manages to keep his compositions outside of the norms and conventional choice of images.

“Over the Under”, which includes Erdoğan’s striking and multi-layered works that create timeless and spaceless frames, can be seen at Anna Laudel Bodrum until 18 June 2023.
