Capturing the moment of transformation

Baran Radmanesh

“Transformation” is the name of Turkish sculptor’s artwork , “Ümit Türgay Durgun”, in Eighth International Sculpture Symposium of Tehran.

This volumetric artwork is made from stones like the other artworks in Tehran’s sculpture symposium. This artwork has a L-like basis which is transforming into a high cubic column, and the column consists of four parts which is also transforming.

In fact, this artwork can be a symbolic sculpture of shapes and forms transformation. This artwork is named “Transformation”, and therefore transformations are formed toward excellence and progress. As we can be see in the L-like basis consisted of three simple pieces and located horizontally in line with the ground. Then there is a vertical column which consists of four pieces and none of them are alike, and each of them are transforming in a way that by going higher the transformation becomes more evident than before. But the transformation of the fourth piece is different than the rest as a new form is emerging from it; a form which is not similar to the lower pieces, and the extra details of lower parts are being removed from it as it seems to fall apart.

The Turkish artist of this volumetric artwork has made this transformation understandable not only by changing of forms from a piece to another one but also by molting of pieces of the column. He tried to induct molting by creating grooves on the body of the column. “Türgay Durgun” has cut the connection points of L-like basis with column in a way that it seems the mentioned column has risen from the horizontal basis. It is because of this method of performance that despite the multiplicity of its parts, the whole structure seems as an integrated artwork.

The creator of this stone sculpture has created this artwork artistically in a way that in the eyes of the viewer it seems like an earth quake has happened in this artwork, and the resulting vibrations have caused the outer layer of column to crack and some parts of it to fall. After that, a new form is created that has been hidden in the heart of this stone and it is willing to transform.

In fact, this artwork is created by thought and capable hands of “Ümit Türgay Durgun” seeking to capture the moment of a transformation without showing the form of transformation completely.
