Ken Currie, Untitled, 2017, Oil on panel

Ken Currie: Rictus, Flowers Gallery

Since the early 1990s, Scottish artist Ken Currie has been known for his closely observed and often unsettling portrayal of the body, depicting the damage inflicted by war and conflict, illness and decay as a response to what he felt was the sickness of contemporary society. Currie’s paintings address the tragic themes of modernity, balancing the opposing imagery of mechanised destruction and degradation with the generative, creative potential of the human body.

An art residency curated by Mustafa Boga in Adana, Turkey from 21st of September until 8th of October in 2017. Most of the artists had never been to Adana. The residency was a collaboration between local life and visiting artists and examined how experiences that come from culture, education, lifestyles and religion can be explored and interpreted through visual and expressive language. The artists’ journey focused on ‘Self Portrait’ and encouraged participants to reflect on how their behaviors change when living in unfamiliar cultures, and how this might impact on their sense of identity.
