The sculptures and drawings of Eylem Aladogan (1975, Tiel) are born from experience and from a fascination with the concept of power. What interests her is not just power in itself, but especially the way it is generated, especially the workings of willpower. However strong a drive such as willpower may be, actually harnessing it means overcoming often unavoidable existential fears. This coexistence of contrasting − sometimes diametrically opposed − forces, is one of the defining features of her work.
