About the exhibition

Working across video, sound, performance, and installation, Özgür Kar’s cross-disciplinary practice is an exploration of contemporary existentialism with a particular focus on the interconnectivity of digital media and the body. Kar’s installations feature black and white minimally animated characters trapped within television screens. Taking inspiration from Ottoman and Persian folklore, experimental theatre, early animation and 1990s MTV cartoons, his works are devised as theatrical scenes with each character playing its part within a non-linear script. Often working with voice actors and instrumentalists, Kar layers his source materials to create deceptively simple looping part soundscapes that become increasingly fraught and profound with repeated viewing.

In GOOD NIGHT 2021 an almost eight-metre-long animated skeleton lies confined within the edges of television screens as they sing a haunting lullaby. This monumental yet cramped figure of Death gazes apathetically towards a murky city skyline. Their melancholic song expanding outwards beyond the visual confines of its digital coffin as the lullaby gently drifts, drones, and grows still, reverberating its sorrowful tune into the listener’s body.

On Saturday 27 August, the Gallery is open 10am-3pm only as we prepare for the AGWA Foundation Gala supporting women in the arts. Some exhibition access will be disrupted with two Tracks We Share ground floor galleries closed. AGWA Rooftop bar will be closed, reopening at 2pm Sunday. Details
