Kasa Gallery welcomes its artist in residence

Kasa Gallery is happy to announce that Batu Bozoglu is the winner of the artist in residence program for 2012.

KASA Gallery, in collaboration with FACT (Foundation for Art and Creative Technology), the Leonardo Electronic Almanac, Goldsmiths, University of London, University of Westminster, and the MA in Media Studies at The New School has initiated an annual residency program for young artists from Turkey.

Launched in 2012, the residency program will continue to support one artist each year by offering the opportunity to use the gallery space as well as by providing mentoring, exhibition material and hosting a final solo show by the artist at the end of the residency period.

Kasa Gallery has received many applications from Turkish artits for its residency program for the summer 2012. After a careful review, Batu Bozoglu with his project Homework: “Make My Day” was selected as the winner.

Homework: “Make My Day” is a new media project aiming to create collaborative artworks with public participation. It is an interdisciplinary piece where the communication and sharing occurs online through its website. For Homework: Make My Day, the artist will gather “homework” in the form of letters sent to him describing what the artist should do for the duration of a day.

The artist from his engagement with the audience will create a body of artworks using a variety of media ranging from painting to photography, video to installations.
