Ahmet Sarı

In his work, Ahmet Sari examines the objects of anthropology that helps to systematically define the perception and life stages of the masses. The artist criticizes the West for destroying the demographic structure of societies, by modeling the objects that are constantly in motion throughout history and today for their own purpose. According to the artist, orientalism and the preservation of the uncertainty of political realities are the result of this. 

Sari’s works include objects that are increasingly crowded on canvas and turn into a delicious game. By making the viewer a part of the work, he draws attention to the relativity of perception, anxieties in contemporary life, and the falsity of comfort zones. 

He was born in Hatay in 1980.

He graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree from the Anadolu University Fine Arts Faculty in 2005. He is managing the Printing Studios at Akbank Culture and Art Centre since 2003. He currently lives and works in Istanbul.
