Monstrum is a performative painting exhibition that ‘demonstrates’ how one can artistically subvert all kinds of moral degradation associated with the demonization of other. The exhibition highlights a first-hand perspective of recent dramatic political events involving excessive cruelty. Oncu utilizes the monster as a metaphor to problematize the clashing of extremes by introducing it as a third party to antagonistic conflicts of various kinds. Her monsters resist any classification built on hierarchic dual oppositions, and thereby confront any categorization based on moral judgment.

OCAD U Student Gallery's is holding an artist talk with Yasemin Oncu on December 8th at 2:30pm.
