The refusal of the regularity or the acceptance of the unorthodox.
It is the art of everything. In the inanimate and living. The shape and meaning,
In spirit and body, logic and absurdity.
Everything is architecture. By Hermes Trismegistus, by bacterium.
The Heraclitus said ... Everything flows ....
The Architecture says .... everything in shape ..... so have art in them ..!!

Mehmet Ali UYSAL

 Mehmet Ali Uysal - Space Matters

The Space records - 
internalizes - what is going through in it - 
the human experience - along with the Time. 
Mehmet Ali Uysal

The world today is in a state of permanent transition, in which the process of creating, exhibiting and perceiving art is unavoidably connected to the location of its' production and display. Therefore, in contemporary art, space is considered an immanent parameter with the power to influence art, artist and spectator.

In Mehmet Ali Uysal's works, space is a major factor. For him, the exhibition space is an inseparable part of his sculptural installations and videos. Inside the White Cube, the artist analyzes how the process of creating art is connected to the time and place of its' production and displacement.

Uysal is making the invisible visible, by interconnecting art and its' context. He reveals the space that surrounds the art work and seals it from the outer world. The walls of the gallery become porous and are not longer a limitation. They become part of the work. 
As for Lao Tse, which considered the utility of an object (wheel, vessel, house) depends on its' empty space, the artist gives the spectator the chance to experience space and its' emptiness, which constitutes the work and its' place of exhibition. 
Mehmet Ali Uysal researches art and it's context. The place of the work is the reason and cause for creating the work. In the end, the gallery space becomes part of the art work, its' material, form and content. The context becomes the content.
