‘Explorations of Structure’ by Jane Prophet has been one of those exhibitions that leave more questions unsolved than answered. The layering of meaning and the matrix of contextual references make these artworks worthy of being explored over and over again. For me, after the initial exhibition online, it is a pleasure to see the artworks moving from the ‘virtual’ gallery into the physical space of Kasa Gallery, Istanbul.
