Ali Alışır will be at the Bozlu Art Project Mongeri Building with a promotion of his book published by Bozlu Art Publications titled “Ali Alışır 2009-2019” written by Derya Yücel accompanied by a display of a selection of his artworks encompassing all periods of his career.

Treating Ali Alışır’s artistic practice in periods, the book reveals the visual-imaginative journey of his individual civilizational narrative by presenting to readers his 2009-2019 series Hybrid Souls (2017), Cosmos (2016), Virtual Landscapes (2014), Virtual Wars (2012), Virtual Places (2011), Virtual Bodies (2009), as a path leading from the body’s creation, to the body’s association with space/place, the body’s abandonment of this place and entry into war with other bodies, the body’s relinquishment of warfare and self-surrender to nature and landscapes, all the way to the body’s discovery of the cosmos by orienting itself from the world to the universe, and then from the universe to its own inner and spiritual existential search. The exhibition held in parallel to this book on Ali Alışır’s decade-long artistic journey allows art audiences to visually validate the book’s content.

This exhibit that shares with viewers what Alışır, who always includes historical foundations, an emulation of the past in his works without overlooking present-day circumstances, has accumulated over a decade shall be open to visitors at the Bozlu Art Project Mongeri Building from the 24th of September to 26th of October 2019.
