Jewels of the East, 2020. - Adige Batur

- +

In the high medieval period, the Middle East was arguably at a cultural peak. The region was responsible for the first Latin translations of the Greek classics, and Arabic texts in the fields of mathematics, science, medicine and astronomy were unparalleled by other regions. Moreover, through the silk road, Arabic inventions and knowledge gained from the high period and the Islamic Golden Age began to permeate and alter Western culture.

Jewels of the East is a reflection of Eastern society by Adige Batur. Placing Arabic-focused knowledge and progression through the portrayal of an Ottoman intellectual against a global backdrop, it situates the significance of the Arabic world on the progression of civilisation. In many ways, it reflects the magnificent periods of Islamic civilisation.

Adige Batur is a Turkish artist, poet and writer born in the 1980s. He has a keen interest in visual expression, calligraphy, and the pursuit of magical realities which exist alongside all of his creative outputs. Recently, Batur has focused on the invalidity of political borders and lost geographies, where many of his paintings have sought to examine and in turn remove borders between the old and new.
