Alper Aydin (b. 1989 in Ordu, Turkey) studied in the Sculpture department at Gazi University and sculpture, video and performance in Italy at Accademia Di Belle Arti in Macerata. Based on the theme of his PhD, “The Dialogue Between Body and Nature” (2019, Hacettepe University), the artist explores the physical conditions of the environments in which he resides, as well as the idiosyncratic processes in nature. In doing so, Aydin works in the media of photography, sculpture, installation, performance, and makes temporary interventions in nature for his works in the spirit of “land art”. By observing, collecting and adding new forms, he leaves ephemeral traces and changes the space.

The 500-hectare Yason Coast of Turkey’s Black Sea region of Ordu Province is the “production area” of artist Alper Aydın. Here he finds the large and beautiful rocks for his photographic installation, determines their respective weight by measuring their size, and writes this on them with water-based acrylic paint that does not harm the water or the rocks.

This number defines the rock and gives it its own identity. By measuring natural objects, the social meaning and importance of nature is revealed – with rocks being one of nature’s most fundamental structural forms. For the exhibition, about 250 individual rocks on the coast will be photographed and their dimensions measured. They will also determine the respective size of the photos, which will be printed in five different sizes and arranged in a harmonious hanging.
