Otto Batuhan Turker

Otto Batuhan Turker

Hometown: Ankara

Based in: Ankara - İstanbul - Berlin

Otto Batuhan Türker claims that the architecture itself is a constructionist discourse of contemporary life dialectics suggesting a materialist and rationalist attitude towards the ideas. Turker's visual construct constitutes architectural metaphors, principles and processes in the intersection of painting, sculpture and installation to explore how the contemporary homo-sapiens have been charmed with modernism and the modernist perception. Therefore, his works seeks to reach to the pure, the abstract and the meta; in which the representation of the idea has been defined through the construction process of the work. The process of construction as a result of the analysis / psychoanalysis of the object, the structure and the place bears the traces of the artist's deconstructionist and designerly attitudes. ‘the construction of perception’, ‘visual and kinesthetic experience’, ‘objects’, ’structures’ and ‘the built environment’ ; the social, economic, aesthetic and institutional systems that relate the individual with these in terms of context are the key subjects of the artist's experiments.

The artist, who took a part in the installations and exhibitions of artists such as Hale Tenger, Armin Linke, Turiya Magadlena at the 16th Istanbul Biennial (2019) curated by Nicolas Bourriaud, was included in the Saatchi Art collection curated by Megan Wright with 'Split Canvas: International Klein Blue' in July 2019. The artist, who opened his first solo show in METU in 2018 (May), was awarded by Architizer, Ministry of Culture and Tourism Turkey, ISMD, Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality and ArtAnkara Contemporary Art Fair. His recent exhibitions include ‘Aesthetics&Criticism’ (group show, curator:Jale Erzen), ‘Archive No:11’ (group show, curator:Ayşen Savaş), ‘_strata’ (performance installation, curator:_sojörn) in METU and fairs such as ArtContact Contemporary Art Fair, ArtAnkara 6th Contemporary Art Fair, İBB Kültür Maçka.
