Parrhesia/Free Speech by Pinar Ture Gursoy

curated by:

Born in Istanbul, Pinar Ture Gursoy completed her higher education in Urban and Regional Planning in Yildiz Technical University.

She then got married and became mother of two daughters.
Since 1998, she worked intensively at studios of numerous distinguished Turkish artists such as Prof Tayfun Erdoğmuş, Hülya Düzenli, Mahir Güven, Orhan Taylan, Seçil Büyükkan Atmaca and Izzet Keribar etc in Istanbul. During these experiences, she worked on painting, etching and photography and studied different methods that she then internalized in her art.

During the period between 2010 and 2014, she got back to university and graduated from BA in Philosophy from Anadolu University, with distinction. While studying philosophy, she was also living on and off in Paris, where she immersed herself in museums while occasionally participating to workshops at the Académie de la Grande Chaumière in Paris.

Afterwards she graduated from MSc in Museum Management from “Istanbul University”.

During 2015-2018, she lived in London, where she also explored the vibrant contemporary art scene via frequenting museums, such as Tate Modern, Barbican Center, Serpentine Art Gallery, among many others…
She has been exhibiting in various Turkish cities and also abroad in Tokyo, Lucern, Deventer, Venice, Titan, Napoli, Marakkesh, Thessaloniki, London etc...
She continues working at her own studio/home in Istanbul.

Throughout my own career, particularly initially I developed a passion for the Atelier Movement, at various established artist studios in Istanbul.

Embracing my foundation in traditional techniques, I attended workshops at the Académie de la Grande Chaumière in Paris. I aim to maintain my unique visual language mixing autobiographical material with inspirations from Greek & Ottoman iconography.

My sources vary from childhood memories, sketches and the other objects that I came across at major museums.
