Artist's Talk - Can Altay

Bureau is pleased to host a talk with Turkish artist Can Altay; the first presentation he has given of his work in the UK. An architect, artist, designer and scholar, Can Altay is interested in unorthodox appropriations of the built environment. Influenced by Georges Bataille's ideas on transgression, Michel Foucault's ideas on power and non-normativity, and Henri Lefebvre's conceptions of social space, as well as by art history, Altay approaches his subject matter from a number of discursive directions.

Bureau launches with 'Imperial', the first solo show for Italian-born artist Seb Patane, currently short-listed for Beck’s Futures 2006. Patane’s work consists of interventions with different audio-visual sources, found either by chance or actively researched. News cuttings, photographs, prints, records, sound samples and stories shape a body of work consisting of drawings, installations, sculptures and sound pieces.
