Zeytinburnu Culture and Arts Center is hosting Firdevs Çalkanoğlu's marbling exhibition until Dec. 14. The artist, who participated in various group exhibitions in Turkey and abroad, has opened three solo exhibitions so far. Speaking about Çalkanoğlu's art, curator Mehmet Lütfi Şen said: "Artwork only has a chance of survival if it is original. Only work that is different from others done before can become art. Having high quality craftsmanship and high market value does not make a work a masterpiece, let alone a work of art.
Those that are not unique and do not contribute to the future will be eliminated by history as well as by art." Şen claimed that producing artworks that are similar to the works of other artists can only be done as a part of the learning process. He said the contemporary artists of the future will only become successful by creating new forms and norms with their art. Şen said Çalkanoğlu's bond with the traditional and her original artistic attitude have always stood out in the world of art. "I believe that the artworks Çalkanoğlu creates will inspire art theories and become a part of the future," he said. Çalkanoğlu's marbling exhibition can be seen at Zeytinburnu Cultural Center until Dec. 14.
