ARTIST RESIDENCY | INSTITUT FRANÇAIS, CITÉ INTERNATIONALE DES ARTS, PARIS

TUNCA will be participating in the Cité Internationale des Arts artist residency programme from Turkey during the period from April to June 2017. The selection of the artists who are invited to the residency program is done by a committee of seven with the coordination of İKSV. Born in 1982 in İzmir, TUNCA graduated from Mimar Sinan University, Faculty of Fine Arts. His multi-faceted practice includes canvas painting, sculpture, installation works, video and performance. He constructs a world of images departing from historical memory, cultural identity and political facts. Historical sublimation and ideological constructs of social and political events are central issues in his practice. In 2005, parallel to the 9th Istanbul Biennial, as part of the performance titled ‘Floating Slum House’ the artist spends a week, together with Guido Casaretto, in a floating slum house they have built on the Golden Horn and they document this process. TUNCA participated in group exhibitions at various museums and art institutions including the 4th International Çanakkale Biennial, CerModern, santralistanbul, KuadGallery, Elgiz Museum, and Siemens Art Gallery. Most recently, he was part of the group exhibition “Because We Are Here Where We Are Not” alongside Hera Büyüktaşçıyan at Sabancı University, Kasa Gallery.
