- Artists Kerem Ozan Bayraktar, Orhun Erdenli
In Simulation Crisis (Bayraktar, Erdenli), Ozan Kerem Bayraktar exhibits photo and video works that aim at reviewing our world from an alternative angle using illusion and simulation. His pieces contain multiple references, where he draws connections to various layers of our first and second realities. Orhun Erdenli exhibits large photorealistic paintings and a series of machine-like objects that are built according to the aesthetic of Steam Punk. In both, his paintings and objects, the artist questions postmodern man’s need for believe, hope and simulation, where we all try to give meaning to the disastrous state of our existence.
