Belgin Yucelen

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. Her work is represented at national and international galleries. She continuously participates in national and international exhibitions at museums, universities and other art venues. In her recent work she discusses the concept of time and the transitions in individuals and societies through time. Her past work attempted to understand transitions in individuals and societies. “Journey of a Thousand Years” which included bronze sculptures with etched mirrors was an analysis of how the self is shaped by experiences 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 social and cultural norms. “Words” installation, which included an audio element, was aimed to encourage people to listen to each other 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 times of war.
