b. 1971, Mardin, Turkey. Lives and works in Istanbul.
He explores political, social and cultural codes, and focuses largely on depicting marginalization and resistance to oppressive systems. He reversed the conceptions of nation-state and authority through works on everyday objects like identity cards, banknotes, stamps in his early productions, and started to focus on subcultures, gender and odd-but-ordinary situations of everyday life after the 2000s. His ironic and political approach can grasp the audience easily.
