GİZEM AKGÖNÜL

3D

Gizem Akgönül (Istanbul, 1985) completed her Bachelor’s Degree in Industrial Design in Toronto. Later on, she moved back to Istanbul and focused on philosophy as well as her design practice. For the last six years the artist has been traveling to different regions to learn traditional techniques and history of the land, as she continues her practice in different disciplines and materials for her art and design works.
Gizem Akgönül’s works relay an exploration of a utopian civilization through their objects and artefacts in which the main objective is to question the idea of art and design in relation with their production and craft as well as their reflection on contemporary culture.
The viewer is invited to form ideas and construct a narrative about the artist’s imaginary civilization through the clues she gives with each piece.
