Using the minimal art object of a cube measuring 12 metres, inspired by the early Donald Judd or Robert Morris, Nevin Aladağ refers back to the formal vocabulary of the 1960s and 1970s. But Aladağ breaks up the minimal. In Theke, she realises the adaption of a clear, non-referential object, which however through imitating a bar and its previous use in the shape of stiletto marks on the surface becomes once again referential. In Theke, the constructivist motto of “art into life” encounters, in an interesting way, minimal art when at the opening, Judd’s non-referential objects full of stiletto marks become a bar-counter for one night.
