Practising in sculpture but trained as a painter, Leyla Aydoslu collects detritus and discarded materials to construct site-specific “constructions,” as she calls them. These sculptures emerge from her immediate environment as gestures of an endless amount of possibilities and variations. Simultaneously sensual, clever, immediate and referential to landscape and the history of painting, these constructions act as both determinative of and departures from their origins. In this case, the materials all come from Salzburg and surroundings. As Aydoslu is a Salzburger Kunstverein artist in residence this spring, she will collect materials and construct her works on-site.
Leyla Aydoslu, born 1987 in Antwerp, lives and works in Ghent
