“Through the Looking Glass” brings together more than 40 works spanning from the artist’s early career to her most recent production.

The works in the exhibition cover an era of almost 50 years committed to an uninterrupted research on the potentials of space, time, rhythm and form that are inherent in simple, everyday materials. The exhibition thus aims to offer a survey of Füsun Onur’s body of work, from early abstract geometric drawings to the idea of sculpture as a linear drawing in space; from three-dimensional spatial objects to installations that employ ordinary materials such as furniture, textiles, beads, toys and so on.

Following a route that echoes the intuitive co-existence of individual pieces in Füsun Onur’s world, the exhibition focuses on the strategies the artist has developed in order to expand the boundaries of painting and sculpture as well as to break the borders between them. The exhibition also offers clues as to how the artist’s work has embraced, in the course of her production, quotidian, narrative and even autobiographical elements with the introduction of a gradually diversifying range of materials.
