  Fahrettin ORENLI
   
 

Fahrettin Orenli’s artistic practices focus on knowledge in the present and future, and sustainability/disappearance of accumulated knowledge even posterior to the end of our physical existence in the universe. The aim is to explore the impact of socioeconomic and political issues on creating sustainable knowledge for the future, and the ways by which cities are psychologically and physically shaped into complex entities that then assimilate information. Orenli studied at Gerrit Rietveld Academie (1998) and continued his study at the Rijksakademie Van Beeldende Kunsten (2001). He had residences in several places such as MMCA Residency Changdong, Seoul (2017); Platform Garanti (SALT) in Istanbul (2006-07), and the ISCP New York. In Amsterdam, Orenli was awarded Royal Painting Prize (2000) and the ABN AMRO Art Prize (2004).
