Alum Sinan Tuncay will have his first solo show 'I'm sorry Leyla' at United Photo Industries, in Dumbo Exhibition Dates: April 7 – May 26, 2016.
I’m Sorry, Leyla is an ensemble of both still and moving imagery, as well as the eclectic product of the cultures that Tuncay has constantly experienced. His work explores gender through the conflict between modernity and religious conservatism and East-oriented cosmopolitanism and West-oriented Turkish nationalism. Combining various scales in order to create nonexistent environments, his work aims to challenge single-point perspective, while keeping the flatness of collage. Individually taken images, constitute an ultimately composed fantasy where the constructed nature of gender is constantly reproduced.
Opening reception April 7th, 6-9pm
