ECE AĞIRTMIŞ

Ece Ağırtmış (1995) is an Istanbul-based artist. Ağırtmış creates three-dimensional wooden sculptures based on two-dimensional drawings by fusing her childhood-reflecting drawings with her distinctive color scale.

 

The artist's use of wood as a medium and the sources of her inspiration contribute to the recurring sense of nostalgia in her works. Invoking both the audience's and the artist's own pasts, the wooden touch of vintage toys and the vibrant world of cartoons and animation offer a voyage. The universe established by the artist becomes a shared memory between the audience and the artist when they interact with the Ağırtmış’s works, which causes the audience to feel an inexplicable familiarity with the works. From the perspective of the artist, irony and small nuances that we overlook in everyday life or that we have grown accustomed to from popular culture merge to generate a fresh sense of humor. Moments that are regarded as unfavorable are transformed into an experience that makes the audience smile and provides different perspectives with the touch of Ağırtmış.

 

Among the selected exhibitions; Borderless “Editions” (Öktem Aykut, İstanbul, 2021), “Dev Buluşma: 50 İllüstrator Bir Arada” (Ada Modern Art Gallery, Aydın, 2021), An online exhibition “Ozmoz” (Fam, 2020), “Nabız” (The Circle, İstanbul, 2020), “Lost on the Highway” (Soho House, İstanbul, 2019), “Lost and not Found” (Wieden+Kennedy Amsterdam, Amsterdam, 2019), “O Eski Güzel, Kötü Günler” (Kova Art Space, İstanbul, 2018), “Sunday Morning” (Galerist, İstanbul, 2018).
