Nasan Tur, Agony, Pori Art Museum

Nasan Tur

Nasan Tur's solo exhibition 'Agony' at the Pori Art Museum is open now until 24 February 2019. Tur works in an intermediate area between the urban and the gallery space, drawing his material from messages and tensions he finds in the urban environment. The overarching theme of the exhibition embraces all social struggle and the question of its justification. Nevertheless Tur also examines the individual’s experience: personal risk taking and opening oneself to ridicule. Yet the boldness to put oneself at risk, the ability to laugh at oneself, the tenacity to try again and again, and the ability to endure failure, these are all necessary if we want to defend important values.
