Blood Spoils The Dream by Ali Elmacı

Ali Elmacı is presenting his 5th solo exhibition; ‘Blood Spoils the Dream’ The artist questions the sacred of our time with a wholesome presentation that he displays for the first time through a combination of reliefs, sculpture and paintings alongside an installation of colour and roses on the walls. In his compositions the artist presents power dynamics, symbols of authority, and a time where fame is mystified through the codes of these figures in the system.

The exhibition that is comprised of three series, “My Lord Recreate Me”, “I’m Living with My Wounds” and “Blood Spoils the Dream” that gives its name to the exhibition presents figures that a more dynamic and active poses in comparison to his previous series. “My Lord Recreate Me” series shows the contradiction between reality and perception through glorified idols such as Lady Gaga, Rihanna and Freddie Mercury.

Ali Elmacı, who is one of the leading artists of his generation, displays his criticism of authority with “Blood Spoils the Dream” through a colourful and crowded installation that transforms the figures and symbols of his painting with a dramatic irony.
