Leyla Aydoslu

Graduation year




Aydoslu’s work often involves the deconstruction of architectural elements that are adapted to the scale of the human body and the space in which the work is displayed. The artist searches the streets for potentially interesting objects, often remnants of building materials, which she then experimentally transforms into constructions and sculptural installations that may be both robust and elegant. With respect for the characteristics of the material, she tries to find – in the course of the creative process – ways to link the various elements together to the point where a sense of tension is attained.

The mould and the cast – negative and positive space – frequently recur in her oeuvre. The works have an immediacy and urgency that is not based on a theoretical or conceptual discourse.
