Ahmet Rüstem Ekici

Ahmet Rüstem Ekici

Born in 1983 in Adana, Ahmet Rüstem Ekici graduated from Bilkent University Faculty of Fine Arts, Department of Interior Architecture and Environmental Design in 2008. He worked for a decade as an art director in the realm of television set, studio and stage design. Having obtained a certificate of Art Writing from Node Center Berlin in 2015, Ekici has been writing art and exhibition articles for various magazines and social media platforms as well as in his own blog. He continues his artistic venture with 3D drawings and site-specific installations.

He uses photography, digital drawing, digital collage, ceramic and readymade object to create works on human body and its social codes, shaping around concepts like gender, belongingness and existence. The concept-driven approach of his site-specific installations reveals the potential of the readymade object  by tackling films, events and subjects unforgetable to our society.
