Loris Cecchini / Seed Syllables
Italian artist Loris Cecchini’s first solo exhibition in Istanbul titled “Seed Syllables” can be seen from September 12 to November 2, 2017 at Sevil Dolmacı Art Consultancy, parallel to the 15th Istanbul Biennial. Cecchini’s works range from photography to drawing, from sculpture to large scale installations. Many of them have been exhibited in important museum and corporate collections around the World. Inspired by the organic growth of plants and natural phenomena, Cecchini has created stainless steel modules which can vary in shape and size, adapting to various architectural forms. For his exhibition at Sevil Dolmacı Art Consultancy, the artist transforms once again the gallery space and continues to distort the reality. Represented principally by the Italian gallery Galleria Continua and also Leila Heller Gallery, Loris Cecchini is also currently exhibiting in Fondaco Tedeschi, Venice his Waterbones installation, composed of 8000 pieces of stainless steel modules. In September 2017 he will participate in the group exhibition organized by Galleria Continua in Le Centquatre-Paris, in which many other important world renowned galleries and artists will take part. Many of Cecchini’s works belong to international institutions, among which The Elgiz Museum, Istanbul, Fondation Louis Vuitton, Paris, Museo Nazionale delle Arti del XXI Secolo, Rome and GAM, Torino stand out.
