Nasan Tur’s work captivates with its powerful intensity. His videos and photos evoke strong emotions: panic and the flight response mix with the fear of loss and phantasies of the ideal. Tur’s art invites viewers to take a fresh look at all conditions – not through the force of dominance, but through gentle questioning of both the actual and desired state.
His art does not shy away from the dispiriting, horrible, and infuriating social topics. He explores human existence and shows compassion for the suffering of others, which often acts as a catalyst for change within us and our society.
Tur’s art interrogates rather than provides solutions. It is predicated on the subliminal, on symbolic deeper meanings, as well as the spectators’ willingness to self-examine.
