Melike Kara – Lunch

Melike Kara – Lunch

Salon Kennedy Salon Kennedy happily presents Melike Kara
“Lunch”. It is the first solo exhibition of the artist in
Frankfurt.
In her work, Melike Kara first and foremost allows the being
to emerge without any evaluation. She questions the notion of
duality between form and formlessness, incurrence and
dissolution, focusing on the correspondence between groups and
singular figures. Attitude, gesture and facial expression
visualize social constellation, transmitting undefined content
without ever being specific. Yet, by reflecting common,
everyday social encounters, the figures seem utterly familiar.
Emanating from the being, the artist allows the canvas to
react upon all these emotions. The colour however, is
deliberately selected to provide a form and frame to the
painting´s inner life.
Melike Kara, born in 1985 in Bensberg, lives & works in
Cologne. She graduate from the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf in
2014, where she studied as “Meisterschüler” under Rosemarie
Trockel.
