Civan Özkanoğlu

Civan Özkanoğlu’s interdisciplinary work traces the everyday. He is interested in seemingly mundane stories and daily absurdities and how they converge in public space, mass media, the art world, and in the realm of politics and collective memory. His practice has increasingly moved from photography to other visual, sculptural and performative interventions that tend to the conceptual tensions within artistic production and the exhibition forms it enables.

Civan Özkanoğlu has exhibited work at SALT, Istanbul; National Academy Museum & School, New York; and Istanbul Modern, among others.

Moko Fukuyama

Moko Fukuyama’s work is driven by storytelling and narratives. Through film and  sculpture, she questions how place can shape lived experiences and the intimate lives of her subjects. She creates open and sympathetic spaces to explore the socioeconomic realities and psychology of everyday life. Her approach is quasi-documentary; she draws from people’s real stories and adapts them into fictional cinematic and sculptural scenarios.

Moko Fukuyama has exhibited at The Shed, RECESS and SOHO20 Gallery, all New York, among other spaces.
