Haluk Akakçe

Haluk Akakçe (b. 1970, Ankara, Turkey – d. 2023, Istanbul) creates drawings and mural paintings as well as videos that he devises as a logical follow-on to his pictorial work. These digital animations, often abstract compositions which transform themselves, are accompanied by music, and form visual narrations of metamorphoses which illustrate sometimes very human experiences. Change, solitude, calm or agitation, Akakçe attempts, in his own terms, to “visualise emotions”. Still Life (2002) shows, in a double projection, spaces and objects perceived from two different points of view. For the artist, this simultaneity is comparable to the simultaneous perception by the two hemispheres of the human brain. He represents here some of the most classic dualities, like the couples of “right and left, feminine – masculine or nature and capital”.
