Jonathan Trayte | Pazar: Istanbul, Turkey

21 March - 31 May 2014

Marcelle Joseph Projects is thrilled to present and curate PAZAR, British sculptor Jonathan Trayte's first exhibition in Turkey. This exhibition will feature a seductive array of sculptures, paintings, and images inspired by the marketplace and specifically the sensuous bazaars of Istanbul.  In this exciting new exhibition space, enormous concrete casts of pumpkins and marrows are presented amongst sugary aluminium paintings and exotic, meticulously painted bronze fruits mounted on towering cemented plinths. Trayte's practice is concerned with the mimicry of foodstuffs and inspired by the language of colour used in food display and packaging.  The exhibition has been titled PAZAR, the Turkish word for both market and bargain.
