Firat Erdim

FIRAT ERDIM'S work is based in a practice engaged in architecture as well as sculpture and often inspired by observation of specific ancient and post-industrial landscape. The primary focus of his work has been to explore the transformation of things - and of places - between the states of Nature, Raw Material, Construction and Ruin. A multidisciplinary practice has enabled him to think about these transformations in a larger critical context and at many scales of operation, ranging from the urban landscape to the architectural detail. His recent work has been with objects and site-specific installations which seek to simultaneously contain states of construction and ruin; structure and debris. Using wood and stone as the primary materials in his work, the artist achieves his purpose of retaining a memory of their origin, development and metamorphosis.
