Sercan Gundogar

Lives and works in Istanbul

As a visual artist, Gundogar's photography practice investigates notion of nature, environmental policies and transformative characteristics between cultural and natural areas. He is also fascinated by human centered world and its visual representations. The anthropocentric revolution of landscapes as a contemporary discourse motivates the subject matter of his current holistic approach to photographic practice; strongly highlighting a visual transformative story of nature which every species belongs. Dictated compositions, geometrical arrangements and over controlled landscapes are depicted to visualize the aspects of human mark. Manifestation of decreed compositions indicates imperious identity of humans and objectification process of other species. These landscape images also induce questioning notions of domesticated and wild and relationship between these concepts and human intersubjectivity. Gundogar holds a BA in Photography and Video awarded by BAU, Istanbul. He has completed various history courses during his study which influences this interdisciplinary perspective towards transformative histography of beings. Gundogar's works are exhibited at diverse array international art galleries, art fairs and festivals, including; Schneidertempel Art Gallery, Mamut Art Project, and Paratissima, Turin.
