Galerist is pleased to announce the acquisition of Burcu Yağcıoğlu’s two drawings by Istanbul Modern museum’s permenant collection.
Burcu Yağcıoğlu was born in Istanbul in 1981. She studied BA in painting at Mimar Sinan Fine Arts University and MA in Visual Arts and Visual Communication Design at Sabanci University. In 2008 she moved to London to study MFA in Fine Art at Goldsmiths Collage. She graduated in 2010 and she currently lives and works in London and Istanbul. Yağcıoğlu’s practice encompasses drawing, video, collage and painting. Her work explores the interrelations, shifts and influences between species, natures and fictions. Working with various visual systems and products, such as gif animations, cookbooks and encyclopedias, she creates works, which reflect on information flow, perceptions of nature and given cultural hierarchies. Yağcıoğlu’s works have been exhibited in many galleries, institutions and galleries including Istanbul Modern Museum, American Hospital, Sabancı Museum, Ever Spring Museum, Taichung and Elgiz Museum.
