2nd solo show, 26 Jan - 25 Feb 2012, Istanbul / Turkey

Second solo exhibition Full Contact at Gallery x-ist between 26 January and 25 February 2012 in Istanbul/TR.

“Türkkan’s brand new series, Full Contact realised in Southeast Asia in 2011, focuses on the use of male and female bodies and their commercial re-appropriation. Go-go dancers, B-girls, ‘hired’ girlfriends and the lifestyle of Muay Thai fighters – who are trained from a very young age – bring out the ‘body’ as the common source of income.”
