ACQUISITION | VEHBİ KOÇ FOUNDATION COLLECTION, ISTANBUL

Galerist is pleased to announce that Nil Yalter’s installation 'Topak Ev' along with drawings and collages (1973), is now part of VKV Collection. 'Topak Ev' is an historic masterpiece, its form borrowed from the ancestral traditions of the Anatolian nomads. The piece represents the circular ‘women’s tent’, revisited by Yalter both technically (a metal structure replaces the usual wood and industrial felt is used in place of the nomads’ handmade wool felt) and ideologically. The tent becomes a feminist manifest and a reflection on contemporary forms of exile.
