exploring the potential of things
Hamide Design Studio in collaboration with Dansk made for rooms welcomes you to the exhibition “Leftovers” presenting one of a kind and limited edition paper works by designer Seda Özçetin.
“Leftovers” studies the potential of things. What something is made of and what it can be is its main focus. It ignores predefined scenarios. It evaluates and revaluates. This play with value is a learned attitude. It was the designer’s mother, Hamide Yanc Özçetin, who set the example. Hamide was a fashion designer. She cut fabrics, sewed clothes, and unlike many, kept her leftovers even the smallest ones. Then, she cut, sewed, and transformed these leftovers into things. She was obsessed with not to waste. She respected materials, all the work behind it so much. It was an act of obsession that became a heritage.
“Leftovers” consists of 2D and 3D collages, and paper cuts. The essence of the works lies in the process, which was mainly guided by the characteristics of the leftover material. Each design uses geometric compositions and layering. 3D collages, playing with light and shadow, act like sculptures.
The exhibition is an arrangement within the “2. Hamide Days”. Hamide Days is organized every year from the 20th of February to the 4th of March, for the anniversary of Hamide Yanc Özçetin’s birthday and passing; the honorary founder of Hamide, the mother of the co-founders and their main inspiration.
