25.8 – 1.10 2016
Opening Thursday August 25, 5-8 pm
Galleri Andersson/Sandström is opening the autumn season 2016 with the internationally renowned artist Ramazan Bayrakoğlu (b. 1966). Bayrakoğlu’s artistry is centred on images. The starting point of the large-scale works by the Turkish artist is at first sight ordinary photographs of unknown places and people. The works are made up of either textiles or plexiglass with time-consuming work behind it, creating an illusion of a painting or a photography. This is the first time Bayrakoğlu’s works are being shown in the Nordic countries and it is his first exhibition at Galleri Andersson/Sandström.
Swedish Cultural Radio News (Kulturnytt P1) interviewed Ramazan Bayrakoğlu about the current situation for artists in Turkey.
