Kerem Ozan Bayraktar
Kerem Ozan Bayraktar's work is about establishing a physical and conceptual environment. Using digital visualizations, photographs, animations, models, everyday objects, texts and graphics, Bayraktar focuses on the behavior, blockage points, boundaries, collapses, mutations of natural and artificial systems and how we understand them. These systems consist of organizations ranging from spontaneous street plants to exoplanets, which are quite different from each other in content but have similar systemic principles.
Bayraktar, who recently participated in the "Berlin Senate Guest Artist Program" and "Istanbul Biennial Study and Research Program", has 6 personal exhibitions, apart from his latest exhibition "Rocks and Winds, Germs and Words" (2019, Sanatorium). Some of the group projects the artist participated in in 2019: "Ubiquitous Surfaces" (2019, Seager Gallery, London), "The Sound of No-one Listening" (2019, The Corridor Art Space, Amsterdam), "Openhaus" (2019, ZK / U, Berlin), "Istanbul Biennial Digestion Program" (2019, MSFAU, Istanbul), "From flesh to bone" (2019, Operation Room, Istanbul). Bayraktar, who completed his Master's and Proficiency in Art education at Marmara University Fine Arts Institute, lectures on digital images, art theory, photography and printing techniques at various institutions, writes art texts and gives presentations in different media. Bayraktar, who lives in Istanbul, continues his work at SAHA Studio.
