Forever: Possible Immortalities is Bora Akıncıtürk’s first solo exhibition in London and constituted a mini-retrospective of the artist’s work over the last three years. Originally working as a painter, Akıncıtürk has since developed a practice that focuses on an investigation of the traditional medium using digital imagery and media. His recent work, that was included in Forever: Possible Immortalities, looked at the human condition in a postmodern and post-technological world, by utilizing the imagined aesthetics of a future that consists of modes of production vastly different from those of today.
Akıncıtürk studied graphic design at Yeditepe University, Istanbul and then painting at Middlesex University, London. He currently lives and works in London and Istanbul. His shift from a design and marketing practice to painting is clearly apparent in his recent work. Alongside his artistic practice, he is also a member of the band FINO BLENDAX, which recently collaborated with Ahmet Öğüt on a filmic intervention at the ICA, London.
