Kavurucu bir yaz bu yaz by Azade Köker is included in the permanent collection of Istanbul Modern (01/11/2023)

Zilberman is pleased to announce Azade Köker's Kavurucu bir yaz bu yaz (2023)'s inclusion in the permanent collection of the Istanbul Modern.

Azade Köker’s works are mainly concerned with identity and belonging. The artist proposes hybridity as an inevitable survival mechanism, which is achieved through a subjectivity based on discrepancy, transparency and vulnerability. In her later works, nature is negotiated as a cultural construct. She creates images of nature inhabited by traces of human intervention, which she then deconstructs by a repeating pattern on the surface. Through this layering and reworking of the surface, she disrupts the perfection and legibility of the represented image and comments on the possibilities of paintings.
