MUSEUM ACQUISITION | COLLECTION WIEN MUSEUM

Collection Wien Museum has acquired Nilbar Güreş's two works from the La Paz Series, Unmasking and Firmly Tied to their permanent collection. The series was created in 2016 for the 9th La Paz Biennale in Bolivia. Prior to her trip to Bolivia, Güreş produced the collages that combine various media such as drawings, fabrics and embroideries as fanciful imaginations of a culture unknown to her. In her collages, the references to the Aymara culture are not just coincidental; they are derived from the parallels between the Kurdish-Alevi and the Aymara culture, both of which have a distinctly matriarchal social structure. The collage scenes, ranging from fantastic to absurd, and their titles, prompt us to imagine and tell stories.
