30 April–23 July 2011
With a keenly perceptive and sharp wit, Ahmet Ö?üt examines everyday happenstance, modes of behaviour and informal gestures which bear witness to broader global social and political structures. Through diverse means of expression, from installation and performance to drawing, video and interventions in public space, Ö?üt weaves loose narratives that meander between artistic practice and social life to provoke critical consciousness and subtle shifts in perspective.
