Between 2009 and 2015 Umut studied in the Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Karlsruhe with Gustav Kluge, Jonas Burgert and Marcel van Eeden. He started to work on Der Stapel in 2014. At first this process encompassed tiding all of the artist’s previous works together but later it evolved into the agglomeration of not only works of art but several of the artist’s everyday objects – both meaningful and trivial. As Der Stapel evolves the artist becomes more radical, in his latest works getting rid of literally every possesion such as his washing machine, his bed and the only souvenir remaining from his grandfather. Yasat works on these sculptures until they reach his own height. This is a self-imposed limit to an endless process, since, if it were possible, there would be only one, incredibly high Stapel. As a vertical chronological line Der Stapel is a materialization and a way to visualize of time.

Yasat’s works are currently on view in the exhibition City Life at Kunstmuseum Arnhem, NL.
