Elif Saydam, “Selling out,” 2022

For NADA New York, Saydam wil present nine paintings and a newly designed carpet that builds upon their recent solo-exhibition at the Kunstverein Harburger Bahnhof in Hamburg, Germany.

In their expanded painting practice, Elif Saydam addresses the relationship between social categories and the construction of aesthetic value systems. Drawing on decoration, ornamentation and embellishment, as well as the judgements and mechanisms they entail, they raise questions around valued labor, identification impulses and social mobility within late-Capitalism.
