Callirrhoë would like to draw your attention to the very first solo show of Nasan Tur in Athens, Greece on June 9th 2023. Callirrhoë will present four artworks which represent Tur’s broad multidisciplinary artistic practice. Through the selected works, Tur explores notions of vulnerability, memory and resistance. Nasan Tur’s work comments both directly and indirectly on the conflicts and failures of ideologies and thereby addressing social struggles. In spite of their political and social topics, his works are often humorous, astounding and sometimes shocking. He questions established stereotypes and how each individual finds ways to reinvent realities. Tur depicts concrete images, almost mundane and specifically unspecific, explicit yet ambiguous.
Nasan Tur (born 1974 in Offenbach) participated in documenta14, in the 10. Istanbul Biennale and in the 6. Taipei Biennale and exhibited in numerous institutions like Palais de Tokyo, Centre Pompidou Paris, Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt, Hamburger Bahnhof Berlin, Städel Museum Frankfurt, Maxxi Museum Rome. In 2012 he was awarded the Will Grohmann Prize of the Academy of Arts, Berlin and 2014 the Villa Massimo Prize of the Deutsche Akademie Rom. Nasan Tur currently holds a professorship at the post-graduate program Spacial Strategies at Weißensee Academy of Art, Berlin. His solo exhibition titled “Hunted” at the Berlinische Galerie, Berlin will be on view until 01 April 2024.
