Kubilay Mert Ural
Born Istanbul (TR), 1986
Kubilay Mert Ural’s works open a window into the desires, frustrations, and needs of our contemporary moment. On an infinite and open-ended loop, they remind us of the on- going oscillations between chaos and the order. Sometimes they tell an incomplete story, and other times they feel like they just popped by… each one is a quest, an encounter, a playful invitation toward aspects of the uncomfortable, and a reminder of cheap melodies from imagined worlds.
