Every Friday from 2 December 2 – 5pm
For his latest show at Blain|Southern, Berlin-based artist Nasan Tur will transform the ground floor of the 40 metre long gallery space into an installation of a live printmaking studio.
The process will involve the conceptual artist working on-site, making visible every stage in the production of an exhibition. The artist, supported by a team of artisan printmakers, will be carving statements and slogans into large woodblocks, which he will then use to produce a collection of several different prints. These will be hung within the installation, increasingly filling the space. The woodblocks, prints and the studio that created them each become individual artworks as part of this self-referential exhibition.
The work will also be shown at Tur’s solo museum exhibition, which opens a week earlier at the Kunst Haus Wien, Vienna on 15 November 2016.
