Does space matter in art? Constantly concerned with how to reshape his surrounding space, Mehmet Ali Uysal has managed to create sculptures which make the invisible visible, revealing the space that surrounds the artwork. (Image: Mehmet Ali Uysal, “Peel”, 2012)

This wonderful outdoor art sculpture by Turkish artist Mehmet Ali Uysal shows a giant clothespin pinching the grass. It was built for the Festival of the Five Seasons in Chaudfontaine Park, located on the outskirts of Liege, Belgium.
Turkish artist Mehmet Ali Uysal proves that not all modern art is shit. With this piece, the artist plays with the concept of space and natural contours, and juxtaposes this with the celebratory public reflection of an everyday object, the humble clothes peg.*
