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.

James Beckett

James Beckett’s practice explores overlooked histories concerned with industrial development and the built environment. With a focus on the physicality of historically-laden objects, his works deal with cultural signs that shape our experience in the modern era. The approach considers proximity in the experience of subjects through tertiary bodies, and the implications of their given traces. Beckett activates objects in order to unpack their abstract and metaphysical potential, often employing the absurd and uncanny to form new perspectives on formative events.

James Beckett has exhibited at the 56th Venice Biennale, Venice; Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; and MAAT – Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology, Lisbon, amongst others. His work is in collections of Centre Pompidou, Paris, and Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam. He is the winner of Prix de Rome Art & Public Space.
