The personal exhibition of Dr. Mustafa Akkaya, titled “ENCOUNTERS”, has been extended until the 10th of February 2019. Dr. Akkaya is a lecturer at our Plastic Arts Department and the exhibition can be viewed at Nicosia’s ARUCAD Art Space.
Mustafa Akkaya employs particular facets in his most recent art practice with highly sophisticated sculpture-based 3D printed figures of ordinary people, animals, or objects, which are generally contrived elegant “yet potentially evil since they are strange and uncanny” regarding their multi-facetted tyranny of reality. His art works have the quality of bringing up what happens on most occasions or in most situations of declining hegemonic desire by revealing the symptomatic constructs of sovereign risks of our time.
Akkaya presents newly produced works in his solo exhibition in ENCOUNTERS in which he features on the issues with migration as well as “existential territories”. His artistic practice points out where difference constructs all determining meditations beyond micro and macro emancipation that almost leads us to a ”perpetual dislocation”, reflecting what defines the conjecture of social forces. Hence, Akkaya’s artistic exploration stimulates some new forms of transition consisting of its potential omnipresence through its multiple facets. It is this combination of diverse elements of dislocation that inevitably defines the cultural immersion through an existential ambiguity in various local conjectures.
