    Untitled 15 from the series of the INtheVISIBLE
    C-print on masonite
    Edition 1/3 + 1AP

    Sukan’s new photographic work explores the conventions of the modern white cube as both an architectural context and as a content subject in and of itself. By addressing the notions of spatial memory, presentation and representation, this exhibition enhance the confrontation between visibility and invisibility in social and phenomenological terms.

    Arslan Sukan appropriates images from the internet of ‘installation shots’, white cube spaces within museums, galleries and art institutions around the world. His first step is returning them to their original state by digitally removing the artworks inside. He then manipulates the remaining image, 'the original condition of the gallery', by digitally painting some of the parts, like walls, ceilings or floors. Sukan's layered approach embraces the disputed characteristics of the white cube and 'as a sacred space undisturbed by the time'; at the same time, it expands the potential of artistic intervention in a gallery by transforming the space itself on a plane surface. The artist’s reconceived images of uninterrupted spaces, composed of heightened geometrical shapes, touch base with the minimalist aesthetic and its emphasis on the viewer’s perception, while the flatness of the picture calls to mind the infinite possibilities in abstract paintings.

    By means of deconstruction, intervention, and reconstruction of the white cube, Sukan brings complicity between opposites and creates dualism between recognition and non-recognition, visibility and invisibility, abstraction and concrete concepts. The result is an entirely new space, an architecture of past and future, with a continuously shifting viewpoint. Sukan proposes a phenomenal situation, challenging the viewer on the realism of the photograph and the memory of a space, while also opening up the horizons of the viewer’s perception and interpretation of the exhibition's/ their own immediate setting.

Arslan Sükan

Born in: 1973 Turkey

Arslan Sükan

Translation in progress

Sukan is a multi-faceted artist who is trained in interior architecture and photography and has tackled with ideas that question the limitations of human perception, the borders between the physical and the virtual as well as the visible and the invisible. 

Sukan's work positions the artist as a challenging narrator who re-creates an idea or a form that confirm viewer expectations at first glance while undercutting them in practice.
