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.
