Statement

 

Belgin Yucelen creates sculptures, installations, movies and prints exploring memory, the past and today’s ethics intending to enhance our imaginations and consciousness. She studied sculpture at the Florence Accademia D'Arte in Florence, University of Colorado Boulder, Art Students League of Denver and Scottsdale Art School.

In her recent work she discusses the concept of time and the transitions in individuals and societies through time. “Journey of a Thousand Years” which included sculptures with etched mirrors was an analysis of how the self is shaped over time.  “Time” series inlaid with gold, embracing the Japanese concept of treating breakage as part of the past of an object suggested the frailty of each moment.  “Clothes from the Past” installation of sculptural garments redefined a past culture’s sophistication in a contemporary form.  “Overwritten Scripts” included prints elaborating on how the manipulation of the religious scripture influenced cultural norms.  “Words” an audiovisual installation was aimed to encourage people to listen more. In “Floating Children”, a collaboration with photojournalist Brian Rutter, the installation featuring floating transparent fabric with photographs of Syrian children was her way of speaking to the fragility of children in war.

She is a recipient of grants including the 2018 Moon and Stars Project Grant; 2018 and 2017 Fellow by the Clark Hulings Fund, 2018 Kristal Martı award by KALID; the 2017 Tending Space Fellowship for Artists by Hemera Foundation, National Sculpture Society elected member.  Her work was publicized in Fort Morgan Times, Pittsburgh Articulate, The Tribune Review, Les Femmes Folles, the Daily Camera, Chicago Reader, The Examiner and Reporter Herald.
