DRAFTABOUT

ARUCAD Faculty of Design’s academician Cem Yardımcı’s exhibition called Draftabout will be open on the 14th of November 2019, Thursday at ARUCAD Art Space.

In this exhibition, we encounter with the cases generated by examination of different materials by the sketches, yet instead of the solution suggested by design, the focus is placed on the nonrepresentational texture of the suggestion. The resulting images take the form of dress patterns.

As a result of the ongoing process, an imaginary environment has been created that is articulated with drafts and is developed by suggestions. Some design approaches are represented in sections under the name of mimicsin this environment. Yardımcı, questions architectural bodies and the notions of movement within the scope of its research and studies. The phenomenon of design is considered namely as architectural convulsions.

The exhibition can be visited until 2nd of December during Mon-Fri 13:30 – 17:30, Sat 10:30 – 13:30.

Studies on the relationship between body and topography transform into sections of islands between the mountain and the sea. Each study aims to analyse alienation from different angles.
