OJ Presents; ‘Clear fish, real Water’ a solo show by Kerim Zapsu
OJ happily presents Kerim Zapsu’s third solo show ‘Clear fish, real Water’ which will be opening its doors on 13th March 2020. The exhibition consists of site-specific installations, paintings, and sculptures made by the artist in 2019 – 2020.
Kerim Zapsu focuses on motions between mechanics and organics in his practice. ‘Clear fish, real Water’ leans on the practical process that arises from the possibilities of how manipulative the laws of physics can actually be. At the center of the exhibition lies the frequently questioned concept that is our perception of reality. From there Zapsu’s works sparks up a flow of ideas such as; if the laws of physics that construct our concept of reality, change; will it change our perception too? or ‘Which one is fake, the fish or the aquarium?’.

His previous solo show ‘7,680,000,000’ took place at Ambidexter in 2019.‘Clear fish, real Water’ opens on March 13 at 6 PM at OJ art space in Tatar Beyi Sokak near Galata Tower, Istanbul.
