YAVUZ, Ömer E. (2020). GRID PHENOMENON IN RAHMI AKSUNGUR’S SCULPTURES. JOURNAL OF ARTS, 3(2), 97-116. https://doi.org/10.31566/arts.3.008

Abstract

The sculptures of Rahmi Aksungur are difficult to identify by the grammar of the traditional sculptural language, which is seen as a result of the bearing system of the surface. This makes it necessary to analyze the structuring system that lies behind their surface and the way the sculptor handles them, in order to identify their grounding principle. Such a justification can only be possible by understanding how the grid phenomenon is handled in Aksungur's sculptures. On account of this study, handling of the phenomenon of grid by the artisit which frequently encountered in his sculptures since late 1970’s, examined in the light of Rosalind E Krauss and Hannah B Higgins’s books and essays. By focusing clearly on grid structures and patterns of Aksungur’s sculptures, we try to define the progression of this consistently repeating phenomenon in his sculptures in the context of spatial-temporal and centripetal-centrifugal arguments of modernist grids.
