Hera Büyüktaşcıyan, Nothing further beyond, 2021

Installation view at New Museum Triennial, New Museum, New York, 2021


Featuring 41 artists, the 2021 New Museum Triennial, ‘Soft Water, Hard Stone’, co-curated by Margot Norton and Jamillah James, takes as its overarching theme the perseverance that emerges from ‘precarity and changeability’, and that ‘breathe[s] new life into the remains of collapsed constructs’, as Norton notes in her essay ‘The Moment of Change Is the Only Poem’, which opens the exhibition catalogue.

In Hera Büyüktaşçıyan’s elegant Nothing Further Beyond (2021), strips of industrial carpeting are arranged into pillars, the work itself inspired by ruins: the Arch of Theodosius in Istanbul.
