Özet

This article is based on the concepts along with we can interpret reinvented figure sculpture of today. In the text figure means human body. In recent sculpture art there are different tendencies seen together yet within the lense of the article hiperreal sculptures and human bodies depicted in strange conditions were discussed. Examples were chosen between the works dated nearby 2013. The result is this: Figure is replaced by a very close appearance to human body with its material, texture, scale. In other words figure in sculpture is becoming body. Hyperrealist depiction of human body in recent period's sculpture connotes two concepts. The first one is Freud's concept of "Uncanny" and the second one is Julia Kristeva's concept of "Abject". Within the scope of this article it is tried to be interpreted figure in contemporary sculpture by these two above mentioned concepts.
