Ferhat Özgür



Ferhat Özgür‘s practice channels the tensions of locating one's identity and place in increasingly homogenised societies through intimate portraits of individual experience. The subjects of works such as I Can Sing, 2008, and Metamorphosis Chat, 2009, become indicative of wider themes such as the role of religious and cultural tradition in the contemporary world.
