Asli Erel – Letters and Art of War, London, UK, 14/3/2013 – 8/5/2013

Posted by admin on 14th March 2013  /   Posted in Exhibitions, Exhibitions in 2013

Lahd Gallery is proud to present to you the latest exhibition of works by Turkish artist Asli Erel. This exciting exhibition explores the origin of letters and traces back to the time when they were first used. From the ancient territories of Egypt and through the historical transition of Islam, Erel uses these revelations to show that war has always been there and shall always exist. She contends that in the Middle East where ideas of existence, civilisation, hope and divinity were born, life also ceases to exist.

Asli Erel was born in Istanbul in 1980. She is currently pursuing her artistic interests in light of the progress of Islam and other celestial religions and their spiritual repercussions on us. Her stylised perspective on traditional calligraphy and Islamic arts targeting sufistic philosophy is generally composed of oil on canvas.
