Pi Artworks Istanbul is pleased to present Iz Oztat’s solo exhibition: Watercolour on Paper.

Pi Artworks Istanbul is presenting Iz Oztat’s second solo exhibition Watercolour on Paper. Oztat's previous solo exhibition at the gallery titled Suspended, which received critical acclaim internationally, took place in 2019, during the 16th Istanbul Biennial.

The exhibition brings together a selection from the watercolour series In the Rivers North of the Future (2014-2017), Pleasure/Sizzle (2018-2019) and April Diary (2020), along with the video titled Recounting Nightmares to Running Water (2015), which is based on a series of watercolours. Since 2014, Oztat’s watercolour works accompany the artist’s research processes like a diary; bearing abstract traces of their transient making, as well as the contexts with which they are associated.

Although her work is dependent on the context within which it is produced, Oztat regularly revisits certain subjects: convergence of water and freedom, return of the suppressed past in the present and potentials of fiction in constructing historical narratives and ideological implications of display.
