NILO CASARES /// MEMORY & BLOOD
El asiático Volkan Diyaroğlu nace a orillas del Mar Negro, un mar mil veces navegado por la familia del poeta Hesíodo, quien nos legó el conocimiento de que en el principio era el Caos, Caos que se vio sometido al ordenamiento del Tiempo, cuya hija natural, e incestuosa madre de las Musas de todas las artes, es Mnemósine, la Memoria.

Opening Reception: Friday, 14 March from 6:30 to 8:30 PM
Element Art Space is pleased to announce and be the first gallery in Singapore to present a solo exhibition of a Turkish artist. The show, Blood and Memory, by Volkan Diyaroglu will consist of 13 paintings and be on view from 14 March – 20 April 2014.
Many people have forgotten that Turkey is in fact located in Asia Minor, more precisely in Western Asia, and holds one of the oldest, richest and most diverse history in the world. Its culture today reflects remnants from its prehistoric Anatolia combined with Ottoman and Western culture traditions which results in a “modern” Western state that still maintains traditional religious and historical values. Their influence has spread all the way to Greater Asia and is easily relatable to the audience in South East Asia.
