In Pictures: Nilbar Güres's INIVA commission grabs attention in Shoreditch

| 13 December 2010
In Pictures: A new window commission at London gallery INIVA is grabbing the attention of passersby in Shoreditch.

Beekeeper, by Nilbar Güres, is a series of giant photos which use the setting of an orchard to focus on a Beekeeper who mysteriously casts off her clothes in an exploration of the social norms of clothing and "unclothing".

Güres, who divides her time between Vienna and Istanbul, is known for her theatrical tableaux of women in a variety of media moving between performance and the everyday.

This is her first solo presentation of her work in the UK following her recent inclusion in the 6th Berlin Biennial.

INIVA (the Institute of International Visual Arts) creates exhibitions, digital initiatives, publications, education projects and undertakes research, at Rivington Place and elsewhere. Engaging with new ideas and emerging debates in contemporary visual arts it also seeks to reflect the cultural diversity of contemporary society.
