Sinan Tuncay

September 29, 2016 – October 29, 2016

C.A.M. Galeri, Çukurcuma Caddesi No. 38/A, Beyoğlu


This is Sinan Tuncay’s debut solo exhibition in Istanbul. The artist, who is known for his photography and video projects, is showing an ensemble of collages, meticulously made from both taken and found images, that aim to explore gender discourse through the lens of a melancholic Turkish nostalgia.

Inspired by miniature painting, Tuncay challenges the single point perspective to create photographic hierarchies that oscillate between two and three dimensions. His imagery is an open invitation to experience the contradictions of gender, which are fabricated by both modernity and religious conservatism. Overall, the exhibition aims to subvert the heteronormative structure of contemporary Turkish society, in which virginity and the patriarchal image of masculinity are fetishised.
