Points of Juncture - An Exhibition by Cos Ahmet
27 July - 22 October, Thursdays to Sundays, 11am - 5pm
The nature of Cos Ahmet’s work is centred around the body, and more specifically, his own.
Some of his works are embodiments, in the form of casts of his body. Other times, there is an absence of the body, and is either implied or related to a specific space.
Recurring themes of self, identity, gender and memory are pervasive features in much of his work, displayed as a complex set of body dialogues. Shaped by his use of metaphors, the body has become symbolised through various interlinks, where body and material respond and react with each other.This becomes apparent from the varied processes and characteristics of his practice, that range from woven tapestry, works on paper, to sculpture and objects, as he makes loose connections of their attributes, to represent the body.
