Second book of Bozlu Art Project, “Aloşname” is at selected bookstores.
One of the leading figures of modern Turkish sculpture, a.k.a. Aloş, started producing Aloşnâme in the highly charged social atmosphere of the 1970s. Spanning from then to our times, this visual diary gives clues to the personal history of a sculptor who deserves particular mention for his drawings, and holds a visual comment full of metaphors regarding Turkish history.
Aloşnâme: The Philosopher’s Stone of a Sculptor brings this exceptional collection of drawings in such a rich scope for the first time. Art historian Ahu Antmen’s analysis of this open-ended masterpiece and her conversation with the artist provides a window onto the enigma of the Aloşnâme.
