OTTOMAN PAPER CARPETS BY ARDAN ÖZMENOĞLU

Europapier Austria

3.–9.10.2016

Wallpaper all-stars – a worthy title for Europapier Austria, Viadukt Screen Prints, and Ardan Özmenoğlu after their collective show on Gumpendorfer Straße. In her use of a medium unusual for the typical Ottoman patterns, the versatile Turkish artist gave traditional Ottoman carpets an entirely new look. The
resplendently colorful results of the collective art project were draped all over the walls, a collective art project for which she used various design papers and techniques like screen printing, painting, and cutting that are run-ofthe-mill in the Vienna printing workshop. An exhibition that cast new light on the richly traditional art of carpet making!
