Guest Artist on 14 March 2023 |Gülşah Mursaloğlu

In the framework of the Vicious Cycle group exhibition, the first artist talk of the exhibition and the first reading club of the 2023, welcomes Gülşah Mursaloğlu. This session of inspired by will be online via zoom meeting hosted by Art Laboratory Berlin.

Gülşah Mursaloğlu selected two texts in relation to her work Devouring the Earth, in Perishable Quantities, which is featured in the exhibition. The work hosts various leakage processes, amalgamation and digestion across different temporalities. It aims to underscore the entanglement within the acts of eating/ consuming/ devouring that is often promoted as choice-based, as well as the points and practices of continuity between humans and other agencies.

Reading Material
1) A. Laurie Palmer, Silicon, from In the Aura of a Hole, 2014, Black Dog Press
2) Carlo Rovelli, The World Without Time, from The Order of Time, 2018, Riverhead Books

Gülşah Mursaloğlu completed her BA in Sociology at Boğaziçi University and received her MFA degree from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. In her works, she explores materiality, matter’s agency, and human and non-human temporalities. Her installations, which emerge after an in-depth and extensive research process, don’t remain stable in form, and rather manifest themselves as dynamic and fluid systems through their ephemeral nature. Her recent projects investigate the shift in potato’s temporality in the past centuries, terrestrial sequences, and the ways in which voluntarily and involuntarily eat/devour/consume the earth and actors from the underground. Recent exhibitions include “The Memory in Our Bones”, Green Art Gallery, Dubai, UAE (2022); “Hosting Bodies”, Sanatorium, Istanbul, Turkey (2021); “Once Upon a Time Inconceivable”, Protocinema, Istanbul, Turkey (2021); “3rd Industrial Art Biennial”, Labin, Croatia (2020); “Material Play”, Salisbury University Galleries, Salisbury, USA (2019); “YFD 10: One Must Continue” Zilberman Gallery, Istanbul, Turkey (2019); “A Notation, for Every Crossing”, poşe, Istanbul, Turkey (2019); “Artificial Life”, Chicago Artists Coalition, Chicago, USA (2018) and “Other Hours”, 601 Artspace, New York, USA (2017).
