Baris Gokturk reconstructs two-dimensional historical documents, photographs, and archival imagery about events or individuals, as the artist describes, ‘overlooked by the mainstream history in three-dimensional layers, hybrid fragments and installations that oscillate between drawing, painting and sculpture’. Gokturk rebuilds the photographic image as a physical surface first and then peels it off as a displaced piece of skin that he reapplies to other found or sculpted objects in relation to a specific historic moment echoed in current events.
Baris Gokturk has exhibited work at ELM Foundation, Brooklyn; The Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art, Winston-Salem; Pera Museum, Istanbul, among others.
