Anti-Body: Paper Cuts-
Both artists compose their works out of the same material: the fragile and versatile paper - easy to crumble, but carrying information to the world.
Therefore, the same message is encrypted in the two visions: the force of a woman comes from the vulnerability she accepts and carries with her through a lifetime. Watched distinctly, they act as contrasting entities, belonging to separate mentalities, but placed in the same context: Gabriele Gürtner seems to be mirroring the future projection of what Ekin Su Koc’s woman could become for the next generations.
Ultimately, the universality of woman understands no set limits.
