his catalogue Ümit Inatcı says as introduction to the painting/music experiment
ARMONIA MUNDI …
complex sounds of the microcosm and the macrocosm reflected in each other seek
their own harmony in cosmic unity. As a cycle dynamism, they take place in an
integrative space of rhythmic succession, which gives a sense of chaos and
order. While the voices flowing in the tone of speech are stretched between
density and sparseness, the silence moving in the spaces allows another energy
to accumulate. In order to hear harmonious discordant sounds by looking at a
picture, your eyes must be open instead od listening. To hear with the eyes is
to feel the picture; meaning withdraws itself at this stage.
imagine each of my paintings as a garden of a musical play under the endless
sky within the organic and geometric integrity of the garden. Nature and space
donate their own sounds to me, their colours, their scents…To build an
exuberant ARMONIA MUNDI between an arche and eternity in the cosmos.
see it that Ümit Inatcı brings our world to its very roots, to a space where
the old experiences are collected, a space museum, going back to the first
attempt of human communication, meant to stay, symbols, a symbolic language with
its own colour and tones, forming a melody. He speaks of chaos and order…. And tries
to bring order into the chaos by allotting meanings of life to spaces of life.
The graphic spaces are very clear and orderly, smooth and clean colours,
housing the various sources of life represented as symbols, perhaps based on
old scripts such as the Etruscans, Cyprus bronze age and developed by himself.
we, the visitors, develop our own thoughts in front of the big-sized paintings,
in front of archaic installations, the room is filled with music, which was
composed by Okan Ersan with seven movements:
space and motion
– the creation of the universe
and signs of life
and cosmic harmony
emergence of human antinomy
and seeking harmony in the world
it a key to understand humanity?
