“Space Matters” – Mehmet Ali Uysal

Art & Design


For Turkish artist Mehmet Ali Uysal’s space is paramount, hence the title of this body of work, ‘Space Matters’.  Always concerned with how to reshape the space around him, in his art he has achieved this exploration seamlessly.  A giant clothespin pinching the landscape, Uysal takes the place of the work as the cause for creating the work.  In the end, the gallery space becomes part of the art work, its’ material, form and content.  The context becomes the content.
Built for the Festival of the Five Seasons in Chaudfontaine Park,  on the outskirts of Liege, Belgium generated a bit of attention across the web. It was made for the Festival of the Five Seasons.

    The space matters because it internalizes what is gone through in it -the human experience- along with the time it absorbs; quitely observes lots of things related to the human being. A fantastic piece of sculpture
