MOUNT ATHOS CENTRE
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.
