How To Work Together: Ahmet Ogut
Time Out says
The first solo exhibition in a UK public institution by the prolific collaborative artist, Ahmet Öğüt.
Working with a variety of collaborators is what Kurdish artist Ahmet Öğüt does best. For ‘Happy Together: Collaborators Collaborating’, the 34-year old Istanbul, Amsterdam and Berlin-based artist brings together ten people of varying professions including an auctioneer, a firefighter, a hairdresser, a lip reader and a stuntman to recount their experiences of working with Öğüt on previous projects. Their stories will be recounted at a one-night public discussion at the gallery in a fabricated TV Studio. The documentation will then be broadcast in the installation forming both a retrospective of Öğüt’s past works and a reflection on their participation.
