Nasan Tur examines through a diverse practice that ranges from sculpture, drawing, video, and photography to performance and installation, social conditions, probing the relationship between production, value, modes of communication, and their relation to power. With his installations, the artist invites the viewer to think anew. Tur compels attention with performances that can include somersaults, songs, and screaming. He performs in the streets, public squares, and airports out of the blue.
