C24 Gallery is pleased to present İrfan Önürmen at Volta NY, 2017. In a site specific installation, Önürmen reveals the permeable elements of his work created in different media emphasizing the layering process he uses in his practice. The differing components in this installation are accentuated by the varying subject matter drawing attention to the formal and conceptual associations within the artist’s various periods. Sometimes these relations are beside one another as well as being back-to-back, but always recycling. The sense of disruption reflected from "Diffusion’’ is a reference to the dividing and dissolving psychology of both the artist and the society he’s living in. The installation opens a discussion of the dialectical relationship concerning the process of artistic productios in all its bifurcations, integrations and diffusions.
İrfan Önürmen’s work reveals the relationships and discrepancies between a personal and a public experience through the lens of contemporary media. Önürmen addresses the impact of mass media on the human experience and its visual representation.
