Orçun Çadırcı opened his solo exhibition titled Borrowed Images II at Mersin Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MTSO) Art Gallery. The artist, who built the images (figures) produced by other artists into his own universe by separating them from the universe and his own context in which they were produced in exchange for royalties, presented a completely different language to art lovers with the borrowed images he used.

Painter Orçun Çadırcı opened the Borrowed Images II Solo Exhibition at MTSO Art Gallery. Çadırcı, who opened his first exhibition with the same theme in the same hall in 2018 and presented 15 works to the audience, presented 14 works in his follow-up exhibition, this time with acrylic paint on canvas. MTSO Chairman Hakan Sefa Çakır, Vice President Cem Bucuge, Council Members Görkem Aksoy and Berdan Doğan, Painter Ahmet Yeşil, artists and art lovers attended the opening of the exhibition, which can be visited until April 17.

Sharing brief information about the exhibition, Çadırcı said that the universe design on the canvas in his works belongs to him. Çadırcı, who defines the universe design as 'abstracting from nature images, purifying it from realistic details and reducing it only to the feeling of color and depth', stated that he named his exhibition 'Borrowed Images' because it creates a new language by carrying the images produced by other artists on this universe. Çadırcı stated that he sometimes chooses figures from a statue carved by a sculptor, sometimes from a photographer's frame, and sometimes from a screenshot of a movie, and said that he carries these figures, all of which are people, onto the canvas, into his own universe. Noting that he used the works of artists from Australia, France, Greece, and the rest belonged to artists in different parts of Turkey in exchange for royalties, Çadırcı said, “The digital age has turned the world into a global village. Everyone can see, hear and follow everything. We live in the age of hyper communication. We can easily reach artists on the other side of the world. "We can work in mutual interaction with a common linguistic concern," he said.
Pointing out that it would be possible to find a little minimalism and a little existential philosophy in the new language he created, Çadırcı said, “It is possible to find existential philosophy in my works because a person is born alone, even if he is born into a family, and is alone when he migrates. I prefer singular figures because the individual is essential. "I benefit from the reductive language of minimalism," he said.
