“In his ten years as a practicing artist, Öğüt himself has been what might term a nomadic artist, without a fixed nor physical studio. His studio has been the conceptual space of the cerebral, which he has been able to carry with him from Istanbul, through Helsinki, Amsterdam to Berlin. By enacting the spirit of the »LOFT«, Öğüt will therefore remodel the gallery space into his working studio – Studio Öğüt – a space for sharing, working, learning, storing, spending time, gathering, thinking, meeting, cooking, celebrating, producing and presenting. In so doing, Öğüt will not only radically question the notion of the studio as a point of reference, as a base, but also interrogate and challenge the creative process of an artist.” (Excerpt from a text by Bonaventure Soh Bejeng Ndikung by courtesy of Galerie Wedding)
