Haluk Akakçe was born in Ankara, Turkey in 1970. He received a B.F.A. in Architecture at Bilkent University in Ankara and studied video and performance art at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Writing about Akakçe in the January 2001 issue of Artforum, Douglas Fogle noted the “paradoxical sense of the future as a future anterior that pervades” his work. “Akakçe takes us through the looking glass,“ he continues, “into a world where the future is often yesterday and flatness manifests a new kind of depth.” Akakçe’s videos fuse painting, sculpture, architecture and sound in mesmerizing sequences of art historical and futuristic references. Akakçe has recently exhibited at Whitney Altria, and the Drawing Room in London.
