May 7 - 18 - Women of Lace – Giving Birth – Sezin Bogac Sculpture Exhibition


Women of Lace – Giving Birth – Sezin Bogac Sculpture Exhibition at the V.Ismet Güney Art Centre Lefkosa


By Heidi Trautmann


I have been meeting Sezin Bogac for many years now, as pharmacist in Famagusta, as prolific exhibition goer and as art student to learn sculpting at the Baki Bogac Pygmalion Sculpting Studio in Famagusta. She has always been interested in Fine Arts even when she studied Pharmaceutical Sciences in Istanbul, she took every opportunity to visit exhibitions.

Now, after five years of study and work to find her own style, she is ready to show us 38 works. The combination of lace and plaster is very unusual and on my extensive travels through the world I have never met with or seen such a technique. She told me that she has been researching this combination for a long time until she found the proper way to do it. There is a concept behind the work which I attach here as she gave it to me.


The exhibition will be opened on Friday May 7 at 19:00 hrs by our First Lady Meral Eroglu  and will last until May 18. Viewing times will be Mon-Fri 10:00 to 12:00 and 16:00 to 18:00 hrs;

Sat and Sun: 14:00 to 19:00 hrs. The artist will be present.

On Friday I will find out more details and will report on the exhibition.
