Quiddity

One Person Exhibition

 

Quiddity

|ˈkwidətē| (n.) the inherent nature or essence of someone or something

 

Ro2 Art is pleased to present Tuba Köymen’s solo exhibition ‘Quiddity,’ an exploration of the inherent nature of a thing or person. Through hand manipulation of photographs using abrasives, inks, and sprayed chemicals, Köymen’s new body of work provokes the question “what is it?.” Vaguely familiar images emerge from the cracking, peeling surfaces of her altered work. The result of this transformative process is “an image-world in flux,” through which Köymen invites viewers to try to understand the essential nature or quality of something, and to determine the unique identity of each piece.
