NASAN TUR
FUNKTIONIEREN

26 November 2016 – 28 January 2017
Private View: 25 November 6-9pm

For FUNKTIONIEREN, his latest show at Blain|Southern, Berlin-based artist Nasan Tur will transform the ground floor of the 40 metre long gallery space into a live printmaking studio.
 
The process will involve the conceptual artist working on-site, making visible every stage in the production of an exhibition. The artist, supported by a team of artisan printmakers, will be carving statements and slogans into large woodblocks, which he will then use to produce a collection of several different prints. These will be hung within the installation, increasingly filling the space. 
 
Tur references the history of the gallery building that formerly housed a different type of printing press, producing Berlin’s daily newspaper, Tagesspiegel. Through this link with high-speed, yet already out-dated, media production and the subsequent contrast with woodblock printing - the oldest and slowest printing technique - the artist reflects on the rapidly increasing ease with which information is circulated.

Live printmaking hours:
Every Saturday from 26 November, 1-5pm (except 24 & 31 December)
Every Friday from 3 December, 2-5pm (except 30 December)
