Mk Yurttas

Mk Yurttas’ (born 1978) works play with the cultural codes established by meaning structures and are spinning around the keywords like “schizo-creative, ghostly-becoming, post-human”; under the name of Mikaye which is an art collective of virtual avatars. Uzay Kere, a member of Mikaye, is recording the daily encounters of bodies and architectures depending on his/her look on imperfect beauty as an ongoing photograph series or a photo-diary. The name and surname of the persona, Uzay Kere is a mis-contra-translation of the words of space and time from Turkish to English and to Turkish again. This double translation reflects Uzay‘s bended point of view on these spatial encounters.
