MUSEUM ACQUISITION | ISTANBUL MODERN

Istanbul Modern has acquired Nuri Kuzucan’s Piece-Whole, 2018 to the permanent collection of the museum. Depicting an imagined city, Kuzucan makes his paintings by layering paint, starting with an arrangement of small geometric pieces that end up creating a discernible whole. The artist expresses his reaction to modernism also in his choice of material: the paper tape he uses consolidates the impact he seeks to create upon the viewer. Kuzucan’s works have a fundamental context: to imagine a three-dimensional space within two-dimensional space, and he excels in doing this through his personal power of observation and a contemporary reflection on the culture of seeing.
