Bedri Baykam has exhibited in Paris the series he did in the last 2,5 years. The works were first shown at the Atatürk Cultural Center in Istanbul January 4-26, 2002. They will be exhibited in Paris at the Galerie Lavignes-Bastille during June 4-July 13, 2002 and at the Siyah-Beyaz Gallery in Ankara, September 27- October 23, 2002. The series is entitled "Girly Plots".

Baykam presents in this recent series the works he has developed with the combination of the model shots he has done over several years and the use of different materials.

The images either painted or printed by ink-jet processed canvas are coming together with materials such as tissues, metal plates, plastic floor coatings, papers and synthetic grass, in some multi-material collages.

As part of these works Baykam presents either young girls stripping in interiors or models taking sunbaths in front of their swimming pool with a naked and blunt material presentation that also gives different look at photo-realism.

In the other collages which bring together more abstract versions, materials that have not what so ever relation with each other, come to life through the contribution of timeless landscape iconographies such as the roads, ocean and clouds.

The 150 page catalog of the show will carry essays by American writer David Applefield, Turkish art historian Levent Çalıkoğlu and New York critic Robert C. Morgan and Bedri Baykam."Girly Plots" will be the theme for the 73rd, 74th and 75th one-man shows of the artist.

In the Paris leg of the exhibit, besides 15 works selected for the purpose, the 50 minute video work of Baykam, entitled “Girly Plots” was also shown.
