Berlin-based Turkish artist Nevin Aladag (born 1972) makes sculptures and installations that explore social, urban and political borderlines. Inspired by her multicultural upbringing, Aladag combines objects with disparate cultural origins to create pieces that function as visual “scores,” both reflecting and transcending their material components. In her fabric works, Aladag collages segments of carpets from across the globe to create brightly patterned geometric tapestries which, from afar, appear as abstract, modular paintings with bold borders separating each distinct element. For her most acclaimed piece, Music Room Athens, presented at Documenta 14, she combined parts from various string, wind and percussion instruments with found furniture to create assemblage sculptures that interrogate the role of sound in the making of an environment.
