Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

Split Canvas No:2 (International Klein Blue), 2017
210 cm x 140 cm x 3 cm

As embodiment of the George Bataille’s philosophy on violating borders, on the opposite side of the traditional painting canvas that puts a fence between space and itself, Otto Turker's method banishes the border between artwork and its architecture, its space. Split Canvas has in-between identity which is neither a sculpture nor a painting.

Artist Profile

Hometown: Ankara & İstanbul

Based in: Ankara - İstanbul - Berlin

Otto Batuhan Turker proclaims that architecture itself is a re-constructionist discourse of contemporary life dialectics, suggesting materialist and rationalist attitudes towards ideas. Otto's visual construct constitutes architectural metaphors, principles and processes to focus on contemporary issues, concepts of modernization and history of civilization through the eyes of Generation Z. His approaches define the representation of the idea through the construction process of the work. The process of construction as a result of analysis of an object, a place, or an event bears the traces of Otto’s deconstructive and designerly attitudes. ‘the construction of perception’, ‘visual ideology’, ‘objects’, ‘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.
