Ahmet Öğüt, People’s Park, 2015
To accompany his exhibition, Happy Together: Collaborators Collaborating at Chisenhale Gallery, Ahmet Öğüt has produced a new limited edition artwork, People's Park (2015). Öğüt’s work is rooted in the reality of everyday life and he uses the symptoms of social and political ideologies, systems and histories to produce ambitious projects that enact subtle shifts in perspective. He often employs humour to address complex issues, weaving loose narratives that connect collective memories, local histories and cultural identities.
People’s Park is a diptych based on archival imagery. The artist aligns a photograph from his personal archive of barricades built during the Istanbul revolt in 2013 alongside a lino print, hand made by Öğüt that depicts a demonstrator being pulled by a police dog.
