SHADOWS OF MY SELF
LEIGHTON HOUSE MUSEUM &
ROSE ISSA PROJECTS
23 FEBRUARY–9 APRIL 2011
This is the first solo show in London of the drawings, paintings and sculptures of Selma Gürbüz, one of Turkey’s leading contemporary artists. Gürbüz reveals a gestural staging of her past and present; of the earth and sea; art history and real life events; animals and humans; East and West.
In a way, "Shadows of My Self" represents the cross-cultural aspect of her place of birth, Istanbul, the city where she lives today.
