Erdil Yaşaroğlu’s “Transatlantic” Exhibition Meets Art Lovers

The second solo exhibition of the renowned artist Erdil Yaşaroğlu, titled “Transatlantik,” will open its doors at the Alexandre Vallaury Building from December 25 to January 30, inviting art enthusiasts on a captivating journey.

Four years after his first exhibition, “Oyun” (Game), held in 2019, “Transatlantik” focuses on themes of struggle, compromise, and sustainability through the artist’s sculptures.

Deep Stories Told with Sculptures

Following the large-scale installations in the “Oyun” exhibition, Erdil Yaşaroğlu now conveys his mental game through sculptures. “Transatlantik” delves into the depths and insight behind the artist’s familiar, colorful, and bright faces. Leading viewers into a world where light diminishes, darkness prevails, and resembling the mysterious creatures of the ocean floor, the exhibition creates a unique atmosphere.

Internal Confrontation with Natural Materials

In this exhibition, Erdil Yaşaroğlu’s signature forms meet natural materials such as stone, bronze, and wood. The defiant stance of natural materials challenges the artist, transforming over time into a structure that enriches and reinvents itself after compromise. The works depicting the artist’s internal confrontation highlight concepts of struggle, compromise, and sustainability.

Transatlantik through the Artist’s Eyes

Describing the exhibition, Erdil Yaşaroğlu states: “People’s initial approach to my sculptures is often influenced by their colorful and cute aspects. However, these serve as small traps I set to draw them into the stories behind my sculptures. We live in a very gray, unappealing, and challenging world. I enjoy narrating our troubles with joy. The work that gives its name to the exhibition, ‘Transatlantik,’ is a beautiful example of this. You encounter a small transatlantic sculpture, and this cute little yellow thing tells you how humanity has ruined the world. In addition to the colorful inner world in the exhibition, you will also see its gray and black sides.”

Commentary by BüroSarıgedik Founder Esra Sarıgedik Öktem

Esra Sarıgedik Öktem, the founder of BüroSarıgedik, responsible for managing the artist’s national and international representation and overseeing the exhibition’s structure and management, evaluates Erdil Yaşaroğlu’s surprising internal journey as follows: “Erdil continues to surprise me. We often see the world from opposite perspectives. He challenges me every time! Understanding what he sees and contemplating on what he tells is an experience. This dynamic between us and the artist I represent is like an ongoing game. Now Erdil is in front of me with his internal journey. He speaks to us from a deeper place.”
