Bora Akinciturk (London based, born in Ankara, Turkey, 1982) playfully disorients us amidst fact-checked physical “reality”, intergenerational sensibilities and the slippery virtual outskirts of the internet. Akinciturk is known for his engaging works in a wide variety of media including painting, drawing, sculpture, installation and video. His work addresses ideas from the world of the internet and deals with themes such as apocalypse, internet culture & aesthetics, social arrangements, feelings and expression in the digital age

Bora Akinciturk, born 1982 Ankara Turkey,  lives and works in London.
