Statement

Artist Statement

From the age of 17, I am practicing art experimentally. My art making process start from "blank abstract thought in my head" because it doesn't interest me what I know, to pretend not knowing the known but search the myth which is yet unknown to me. With ‘blank school of thought’ I shape and forming sculpture is the most common part of my "art making" process. On the other side theories like Humanism, psychology, behaviorism, anthropology all concern regarding human, identity, progress, socially influenced lives and non-social but individual-life-to-Climate-Change, all these versatile genres split my artwork into different series. The larger part of the artwork is influenced by humanism which is in order to reflect post-industrial-society. I ask these questions: what does humanism mean to us, and what is humanism, actually? Examining these premises – that humans are the most respectable but most complex creature of the discovered universe – triggered me in-depth analysis on the human in relationship with humanism.

A basic tenet of humanism is that our superior standing as a species obliges us to share knowledge, ideas, and theories, to discuss and debate them, to care for the environment and all creatures as well as each other, and to seek practical implementations of this ethic under real circumstances. Unfortunately, humans dismiss such discussions as the unattainable wish for a utopia. Anthropological research suggests a vast difference between the practice of humanism and the actual 'behavior' of the human race. Our technological progress has focused solely on providing comfort and convenience to humans while destroying and disturbing the lives and habitats of all other creatures. Moreover, it has been scientifically proven to destroy our very climate.

Anthropology holds that the story of human beings is to seek solutions to overcome human problems. But a humanistic stance contradicts this and suggests that we create problems in order to struggle for solutions. War, pollution, diseases now climate changes to terrorism all are the problems humans have generated themselves. I examine the reasons that we consider ourselves as superior to all other creatures; even our behavior contradicts humanist principles. My work comments on these conflicting but seemingly intractable conditions of human existence.
