''A new world'' /April 2016-İstanbul

 

A New World reveals the clues of a story that takes place in near future, in which it is proven that human beings do not deserve to live on earth due to their self-absorbed characters. In the exhibition, the human race who made the world more and more unbearable due to its ambitions and everyday passions, encounters even-tempered wolfs, somber teddy bears, delicate birds and playful rabbits who ran out of patience and want to lay claim to what remained from the planet.

 

Kurhan’s own technique that brings embroidery with acrylics presents this fairy tale through an idiosyncratically fantastical and naïve language. In addition to embroidery and paintings, Kurhan, whose works have enlarged in size yet remained as elegant, includes grand installations to the display.
