Cutfingerism, which marks the 16th solo exhibition of the artist, brings together creative identity with the contemproary art arena in Istanbul. The exhibition serves as a response to the existing tensions between present day art and politics.
The exhibition includes 26 canvas pieces, 28 works on paper, and a video work titled ‘Apocalypse Kebab’, that will be also exhibited in the Valencia Modern Art Museum in November. Mehmet Ergüven defines the paradox created in the artist’s work throughout the show as ‘…the context of a multi-faceted viewpoint, a candidate for scratching oneself is the illusion of organic unity in the painting.’
Born in 1982, Volkan Diyaroğlu completed his studies in the Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University as well as the Facultad de Bellas Artes de San Carlos de Universidad Politecnica de Valencia. The artist currently lives and works in Valencia, Spain.
