Galeri Nev Gezegen

After a long break Galeri Nev hosts Selma Gürbüz once again. Her works were exhibited for the first time in 1991 in Gallery Nev with the title “Fall of the Angels” Thereby, we are celebrating the twent-fifth anniversary with her new exhibition titled “Intemporel” that refers to this old relationship and also to the transcendance of her work that will be exhibited on galery’s walls. Selma Gürbüz’s works that she created while she was in Paris in 2006 with ink on large papers giving birth to her Hair and Plumes series and some of her singular works of the same period come across the audience for the first time after a ten-year fallow. Selma Gürbüz’s familiar figures are coming together -in artist’s words- “softly” to form anonymous symbols of woman and man. What eye sees initially as usual, before long turns into a game and surprises with turns to a exhibited humour of artfull.
After Paris, Selma Gürbüz continued her work in Istanbul and completed her art education in Exeter College based in UK and Department of Painting at Marmara Academy of Fine Arts. Her solo exhibitions were displayed in many centers among which are Istanbul, London, Paris, Tokio, Barcelona and Buenos Aires. Additionally, the artist was invited to Istanbul Biennial, Prague Biennial and Kore Kwanju Biennial; her works were also presented in mix exhibitions especially in France and Turkey. Selma Gurbuz, is represented in many important collections of major international contemporary art museums. In the ongoing İstanbulModern exhibition titled “Artist and Time” is the ink work on large paper that are also in the museum's collection. Artist’s Exhibiton Intemporel will be opened with the artist’s presence in Galeri Nev on November 4th , and will be exhibited for a month.
