Kubilay Mert Ural | Cheapskate

Ellen de Bruijne Projects is proud to present the first solo show in the gallery with new and recent work by Kubilay Mert Ural: Cheapskate.


Kubilay Mert Ural’s work opens a window into the desires, frustrations, and ultimately into our needs of the present times, now. On an infinite and open-ended loop, the work reminds us of the swing between chaos and order. It sometimes gives us an incomplete story, or a story that just occasionally pops up… Each one is a quest, an encounter, a playful invitation toward aspects of the uncomfortable, and a reminder of cheap melodies from imagined worlds.


The artist started within the framework of video, at first more related to the music scene than to visual arts. When he moved to Sandberg and later on to the Rijksakademie he got caught by the possibilities of using the language of painting.
