Baris Gokturk

Baris Gokturk reconstructs two-dimensional historical documents, photographs, and archival imagery about events or individuals, as the artist describes, ‘overlooked by the mainstream history in three-dimensional layers,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.

Chase Middleton

Chase Middleton depicts a disparate range of scenes: ritualistic gatherings, family dinners, hallucinatory artifice. The uncanny arises when the familiar presents itself in a second form. Middleton’s work is preoccupied with the space between these two forms; the division between reality and fantasy. Concerns around class, popular culture, youthful rebellion, and the blurred lines that separate times are woven into the fabric of each carefully constructed narrative.
Chase Middleton has exhibited work at Yancey Richardson, New York; Hyères International Festival, France; and National Photographic Portrait Prize Exhibition, Canberra, among others.
